McCarthy was widely expected to win the Speakership in a landslide.
McCarthy told the Republican Caucus: “I am not the right person to lead at this moment.”

Then last week McCarthy created a firestorm when he told Sean Hannity the Benghazi investigation was all about politics.

Today McCarthy dropped from the race for Speaker.
He was concerned he could not get the 218 votes needed to win.

Donald Trump responded to the news:
