Clyde explains why he didn’t vote to oust McCarthy

9th District Congressman Andrew Clyde (R-Jackson County), who had appeared in recent weeks likely to support any attempt to oust House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, says he chose to stick by McCarthy during Tuesday’s vote because he did not believe it was the right thing to do.

McCarthy was kicked out of office when all House Democrats and eight members of his own party voted to remove him.

Clyde told the AJC Congress should focus on passing the remaining appropriation bills. He added “conservative” appropriations bills are the best way to address “wokeness” and “weaponization” in the government.
