About our Kevin McCarthy news

Latest news on Kevin McCarthy, a Republican politician serving as the speaker of the United States House of Representatives since 7 January 2023.

He was previously the House Majority Leader and House Minority Leader, and has served as a member of the House of Representatives for California's 22nd, 23rd, and 20th congressional districts.

McCarthy was born in Bakersfield, California, and previously worked as a firefighter. He has held various leadership positions within the Republican Party, including serving as the Republican Chief Deputy Whip and the majority whip. McCarthy has been a strong defender of former president Donald Trump, and participated in efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

In the 2022 House elections, he led the Republican Party in gaining a narrow majority in the chamber, and was eventually elected as speaker of the House on the 15th ballot. It was the first time in nearly 100 years that a speaker had not been elected on the first ballot. It was also the first time in over 160 years that the speaker's election required more than nine ballots.
