EXCLUSIVE: McCarthy Demands House Managers Open Up The Capitol


According to a letter shared exclusively with The Federalist, House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy demanded on Thursday that Capitol administrators start planning to reopen the complex.

McCarthy, who announced his candidacy for speaker Wednesday expecting Republicans to retake the House after Tuesday’s midterms, wrote to legislative branch officials that two-and-a-half years of closure was long enough.

“It has been 2 years, 7 months, and 29 days since the People’s House closed,” McCarthy wrote. “That means for 973 days, the American People have been restricted from exercising their constitutional right to petition the first branch of government… That posture is no longer acceptable.”
