Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy: I’m 100% Sure We Have Votes to Pass Border Wall Funding (Video)

Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Martha MacCullum on FOX News Channel he is 100% sure he has the votes to pass $5 billion in border wall funding.

Rep. McCarthy went on “The Story” on Wednesday night.


Host Martha MacCallum asked, “[A]re you guys going to be able to pass a bill that has $5 billion in wall funding before you leave for the holidays, or are you going to be here throughout Christmas, and perhaps throughout New Year’s?”

McCarthy answered, “Well, the answer here is yes in the House. The question is, it takes 60 votes in the Senate, would Senator Schumer (D-NY) want to have another shutdown like he had before?”

MacCallum followed up, “So, you do have 218 votes in the House to pass $5 billion for wall funding, you’re 100% confident on that?”

McCarthy responded, “Yes I am.”
