Kevin McCarthy Smashes Nancy Pelosi's Record with 8-Hour, 42-Minute Speech All Night Long


House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) yielded the floor on Friday morning at 5:11 a.m. after speaking for a record eight hours and forty-two minutes against the Democrats’ multi-trillion-dollar “Build Back Better” social spending bill.

“My one minute is almost up,” McCarthy joked at 5:04 a.m., referring to the fact that members of the House were originally given only 60 seconds to state their views on the bill before a vote that was meant to have taken place on Thursday evening.

McCarthy’s address smashed the previous record — an eight-hour, seven-minute address by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in 2018 in support of the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which benefits illegal aliens who arrived as minors.
