November 18. According to reports from National Public Radio and the Wall Street Journal, in the US House of Representatives internal elections held on the 17th, the minority leader of the US House of Representatives and a close ally of Trump Kevin McCarthy was easily re-elected.
Also re-elected was Steve Scarlis, the Republican whip of the House of Representatives. The US media pointed out that the two top leaders of the Republican Party were re-elected and largely retained the team that supported Trump. Some other House leaders also remain in their current positions, such as Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
According to previous predictions, the Democratic Party will win 5 to 10 or even more seats in the internal elections for the House of Representatives. There are still several election campaigns that have not been implemented, and Republicans have won at least 8 seats.
McCarthy said: “Republicans have achieved historic and political results with the support of conservative women, minorities, and veterans. Everyone predicted that the Republicans would lose 15 to 20 seats, but in fact they did not.”
