Congressman John Rose ‘Confident’ Kevin McCarthy Will Do ‘Exceptional’ Job in House Speaker Role

Tennessee Congressman John Rose (R-TN-06) released a statement expressing his confidence in the newly-elected Speaker of the House, California Congressman Kevin McCarthy (R-CA-20). During the chamber’s 15th round of voting that took place late Friday night, McCarthy garnered enough votes to secure the role of Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives for the 118th Congress.

The final round of voting saw McCarthy garner 216 votes, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY-08), the incoming House Democratic leader, receiving 212 votes, and six representatives voting “present.”

Rose, who voted for McCarthy all rounds of voting, released a public statement Saturday following the California congressman’s victory.

“From the first ballot to the 15th ballot, I was proud to vote for the proven conservative, endorsed by President Trump, Kevin McCarthy, for Speaker,” Rose said.

The Tennessee congressman then expressed his confidence in McCarthy’s work to restore “accountability” in the government.

Rose stated, “I am confident Speaker McCarthy will do an exceptional job leading the new Republican Majority in the House as we work to: hold the Biden Administration’s out-of-touch agenda accountable, reign in Washington’s reckless deficit spending that has caused runaway inflation, restore America’s energy independence, bring back open debate to restore the American People’s voice in the People’s House, investigate the Biden family’s shady business dealings, and tirelessly work to secure our southern border.”

“I assure the people of Tennessee that I will keep a watchful eye on Speaker McCarthy, and if he veers from the conservative principles the American people demand and expect, he will be held accountable,” Rose said.

    John Rose is a man of integrity. A conservative. A quality person. Great judgment and honest.

    He isn’t my Representative but my husband and I had a chance to meet him when RAV’s Freedom Tour came to Cookeville. I am so damn disappointed in his voice as well as my own Representative, Tim Burchett. Can’t trust any of these Reps from Tn except newly elected Andy Biggs. Go Andy!!!

    McCarthy is another weak puppet

  4. Mike

    Kevin McCarthy is a WEF endorsed drone…get the picture!?

    I question your motives John Rose…we’ll be watching you a bit more closely now that you admittedly are also now linked to the WEF…

      Mike – John Rose has been pretty much under the radar but his undying support of an at best moderate speaker is a clear sign to me that he does not share my basic principles. If he is indeed a member of the WEF, he is definitely not who I want to represent me.

    2. Stuart I. Anderson

      Watch as closely as you like Mike, John Rose has a lifetime Heritage score of 99% and a lifetime Club For Growth score of 90%. It doesn’t get much better than that.
