Valley politicians weigh in on Ryan's endorsement of McCarthy as House speaker

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., endorsed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy for speaker Friday, a move likely meant to clear the field and make way for his top deputy. Ryan claimed he has chose to not to seek reelection strictly so he could spend time with family, though many speculate that he stepped down to avoid the midterm election, where the Democrats have a very good chance of taking the House of Representatives from the Republicans.

Mr. Ryan said Wednesday.

Paul Ryan publicly backed McCarthy in an interview saying he thinks he is the right person for the position. Ryan has said he will serve as speaker through the year, though some in the party want him to leave earlier.

Keven McCarthy in his Washington D.C. office in 2012, when the U.S. Government was being closed down as a tactic by the Republicans during the Obama presidency.

This time, McCarthy has the advantage of being close to President Donald Trump, which could shore up his credentials with more conservative members. "The California Teacher Association and the California Labor Federation endorsed our campaign this week; those are the endorsements that matter, not those of Paul Ryan", Matta said.

If Democrats gain seats as expected in the November elections, Republican losses likely will fall most heavily among moderates representing swing districts.

McCarthy, the current House Majority Leader, is already considered one of the most prodigious fundraisers in American politics, raising more than $30 million during the 2016 election cycle.
