FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented on the House leadership race:
"It’s not enough to put Boehner’s second in command in charge. As Rep. Thomas Massie said so well, it would be ‘hard to go back home to your town halls and say, guess what, we did what you wanted, we replaced Boehner…with his right-hand man.’ We need leadership that is ready to stand on principle and change things in Washington, not the same go along get along leadership we have today."
"We are asking our activists to tell their Congressman not to support Boehner 2.0 for Speaker. We’re ready for change in Washington, not more of the same. Kevin McCarthy is too intertwined in current GOP leadership to bring about real reforms."
