We are hearing that after last night's meeting between four conservative groups in the House and the candidates for leadership, that the conservatives are holding strong and will not vote for McCarthy. This is exactly where we need to be, BUT that means the pressure that will be applied to these conservatives to cave is only going to get stronger.
Call conservatives in the House and tell them to continue to stand strong. Give them encouragement by telling them that millions of Americans are standing with them and want them to continue to push for real change in the leadership of the House.
We've already established that McCarthy is Boehner 2.0 and we aren't willing to settle for that.
Don't fall for the trap of picking conservative "person x" or "person y" for Speaker. The establishment wants to split the conservative block in the House in order to usher in McCarthy and give us the same old leadership. The most important thing right now is that conservatives stick together and deny Kevin McCarthy the Speakership.
Call these conservative members and tell them:
We will all wait and see who is their object for "better leadership". I promise to find something better for you next time.
