GOP Leader Punishes Jody HiceHouse Freedom Fund — Friday, January 18, 2019
Rather than focusing his attacks on Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is attacking Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA), a strong supporter of the border wall, to punish him for supporting conservative Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) for Minority Leader.
McCarthy and his allies kicked Congressman Jody Hice (R-GA) off the House Armed Services Committee in an attempt to hurt the Georgia lawmaker politically and to send a message to other members that they too will be punished if they oppose McCarthy.
This is outrageous. We must fight back.
Like Jody Hice, conservatives across the country supported Jim Jordan for GOP leader. Many did so because Kevin McCarthy repeatedly failed to fight for the border wall when Republicans had the majority in the House. Sadly, McCarthy is now using his new power to attack conservatives rather than supporting them.
Kevin McCarthy’s action against Jody Hice is designed to damage him politically. McCarthy believes that by removing Hice from the committee it will hurt his ability to serve his constituents in Georgia’s 10th district and diminish his ability to raise money needed to fund his re-election campaign.
We need to make this attack backfire by raising money for Jody Hice’s campaign right now. This will strengthen him politically and make it clear that these attacks on conservatives will not work.
HFF will pay all processing fees and transfer 100% of your contribution directly to his campaign.
Kevin McCarthy’s actions are a clear example of why many conservatives supported Jim Jordan for this position. Rather than working to unite Republicans in the fight for border security, McCarthy is joining Nancy Pelosi in attacking other Republicans.
Help us send the House Republican leadership a message.
Your support will show McCarthy and his allies that their efforts to hurt conservatives won’t work.
This is very important so please help if you can. We need the Republican establishment to know that these tactics will only make our conservative leaders stronger.
Thank you for being on our team and for doing so much to support the House Freedom Caucus.
