Labrador Congratulates McCarthy

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) released the following statement after Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was elected House Majority Leader:

“I want to congratulate Kevin on his election as Majority Leader and I wish him the best.  I had an amazing time running for this position.  It was one of the best experiences I’ve had in Congress.  I really enjoyed talking with my colleagues one-on-one about the future of our conference and the direction of our party.  Everyone I spoke to, whether they voted for Kevin or me, agrees that we can do better.  The process needs to be improved, the committees need to work their will, and our members need to feel more relevant.  We have a terrific conference – filled with talented, impressive leaders – and I deeply believe that the dialogue we’ve sparked over the past week will lead to a stronger, more successful future for House Republicans and America.”

Question: Are you glad/sad that Congressman Raul Labrador lost his bid to become House Majority Leader?
