The House GOP’s Mercenary Caucus

Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal

The bigger point in the debate over the next Speaker is that the name on the ballot no

longer matters: McCarthy, Scalise, Jordan, Jesus. Members drew a lesson from the McCarthy fight in January and the later Gaetz revolt: We are, any one of us, kings and queens now. While the vast majority of the GOP conference remains focused on what’s best for party and country, a small but significant number of mercenary members intend to glory in their power. Good luck getting through to Washington’s new and ever-shifting royalty.
