GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger Says Kevin McCarthy's Leadership Position Should Be Challenged

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois on Monday said that the leadership position of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy should have been challenged in the aftermath of January 6.

The congressman told C-SPAN in an interview that he wanted to call for McCarthy's leadership position to be challenged after the Capitol riot, but his allies in Congress advocated for allowing the party space to heal. Kinzinger didn't want to pursue ousting McCathy alone.

"It's interesting because I actually thought the person that should have their leadership challenged was Kevin McCarthy after January 6th, because that's why this all happened," he said. "And the freedom club and, you know, some of those folks went on the offense against Liz."

Kinzinger explained that he doesn't consider McCarthy to be "speaking on behalf of the Republican Party anymore because he gave his voting card, his proxy card to Donald Trump."
