My name is Kevin McCarthy and I represent California's 22nd Congressional District in Congress.
I also serve as the Chief Deputy Republican Whip in the House and as recruitment chairman for the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Women and men from all walks of life–farmers, teachers, small business owners, doctors, prosecutors, state legislators—HAVE watched our country head in the wrong direction. They could not let that encroachment on the American dream continue, so they stepped forward to run for Congress and help restore America. The video below describes this national election and our candidates on the front lines: Over the last | Read More »
Tomorrow is Election Day, and I’m excited for the Republican House candidates who have worked so hard over the last several months.

Four days remain until November 2nd – a day when Americans can deliver a loud, clear message that they want to get their country back on the right track.

A Washington Post poll found a majority of Americans are worried about being able to pay their rent or mortgage. This is yet another piece of evidence that the House Democrats’ big government policies have failed. In Colorado’s Third Congressional District, Young Gun candidate Scott Tipton can help bring common-sense change to Congress. Scott’s opponent, incumbent Rep. John Salazar, sided with Speaker Nancy Pelosi over | Read More »

I’ve been impressed that a number of small business owners have stepped forward as Young Gun candidates because they want to get our economy back on track. One of those Young Gun candidates is Reid Ribble, who is running in Wisconsin’s Eighth Congressional District. Incumbent Rep. Steve Kagen has supported House Democratic policies that | Read More »
Every two years Americans hold their members of Congress accountable. If they have done a good job representing them they send them back to Washington, but if they fail to lead they can be replaced.

Unemployment is too high, businesses are uncertain about the future and are holding back from hiring and investing, | Read More »
Election Day is only seven days away. House Republican campaigns across the country are knocking on doors, making phone calls, and getting the message out. Many races are tightening.

Americans have so strongly rejected the Democrats’ failed policies that even long-time incumbents aren’t safe. One example is in South Carolina’s Fifth Congressional District, where Young Gun candidate Mick Mulvaney is challenging the 28-year Democratic incumbent, Rep. John Spratt.

A poll came out showing 61% of independent voters in 10 battleground House districts think Speaker Nancy Pelosi is more liberal than they are.

In Tennessee’s Fourth Congressional District, we see that contrast between Young Gun candidate Dr. Scott DesJarlais and Rep. Lincoln Davis. Today, I had the pleasure of campaigning with Scott. Scott, a doctor | Read More »
