Rep. Kevin McCarthy Elected House Majority Leader

House Republicans today voted to elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield as majority leader. He will replace Rep. Eric Cantor (VA), who lost his primary election last week and subsequently resigned from his leadership post. The election makes McCarthy, who previously served as majority whip, the second most powerful Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives. CHA congratulates Rep. McCarthy and looks forward to continuing to work with him on issues important to California’s hospitals.
