House GOP Needs a Course Correction; Andy Biggs Is the Conservative To Do It
Washington, D.C.: “Rep. Andy Biggs has announced he intends to challenge Kevin McCarthy for the Speakership as Republicans claim a House Majority,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “This, I believe, is a great course correction for the GOP and a necessary step of accountability. When an organization fails to operate and deliver as promisee, it’s time for a serious look at changing leadership.
“The nagging failures of Paul Ryan and the old guard still haunt an ineffective House GOP. Before House Republicans move into electing any leadership positions, we must consider Andy Biggs’s message of defending our Constitution and protecting this American republic. Biggs is a fine and worthy man who would lead with humility and thoughtfulness on the Constitution, not his own political career.”
