Washington, October 8, 2015

Washington, DC –  U.S. Representative Brian Babin (TX-36) issued the following statement today in response to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s decision to withdraw from the Speaker’s race:

“Going into the House Republican Conference today, I was planning to vote for Representative Daniel Webster (R-FL),” said. Rep. Babin. “I was very surprised to hear of the withdrawal from the Speaker’s race by current Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. However, this provides us with a new opportunity to unite around someone who has the vision and leadership to successfully advance a conservative agenda in the House, as well as deliver on the promises of 2010 and 2014 to change the direction of this country. The people of the 36th District of Texas have been clear that they want to see new conservative leaders in Congress and I look forward to advancing that goal.”
