GOP House Leader Reveals Plan to Take Speaker’s Gavel from Pelosi in 2020


House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy likes the GOP’s chances of taking back the gavel from Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2020, based on the districts in play.

The California congressman told Fox News on Monday the Republicans’ path to the majority in the House is easier than the Democrats’ was in 2018. [RELATED: BOOM: Jim Jordan Calls Out Democrats over Unexplained Trips to Mexico]

“Thirty-one Democrats sit in seats that President [Donald] Trump carried [in 2016],” he said on “America’s Newsroom.” “We only have to win 19. Democrats had to win 23 in the last cycle.

“We have fewer seats to gain a bigger playing field to go.”

Pelosi enjoys a 235-197 lead in the House, with a majority of 218 Democrats needed to retain control. Watch McCarthy’s comments on the 2020 election below.

One of the races the minority leader highlighted as a possible GOP pickup is Texas’ 7th Congressional District in the Houston metropolitan area.

Republicans held the seat for decades prior to it flipping to Democratic Rep. Lizzie Fletcher in 2018. [RELATED: UNHINGED: Dem Rep. Clyburn: ‘The Bill of Rights Wouldn’t Pass by Today’s Standards’]

“Look at Wesley Hunt down in Houston, running for Congress,” McCarthy said. “A West Point graduate flew Apaches. They just did a recent poll. He’s ahead in the poll running against the incumbent.”

The poll, which was paid for by the GOP Congressional Leadership Fund PAC, showed Hunt leading Fletcher 45 to 43 percent.

The Republicans also are hoping to take back Illinois’ 14th Congressional District, bordering Chicago.

The seat had been in GOP hands for several terms and went for Trump in 2016 before flipping to Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood in 2018. [RELATED: REPORT: 6 MS-13 gang members, illegal immigrants involved in deadly Maryland stabbing]

The Blue Checkmark Brigade have come out in full force just like we knew that they would. After all, they can’t stand the idea of not having an iron grip on all your information. They don’t want Conservatives to have anything that prevents the big tech oligarchs from spying, censoring, and banning anything that isn’t “politically correct” or is “out of context” as Facebook loves to say as an excuse for suppression.

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
