Gaetz Brags: McCarthy, McDaniel, McConnell Ousted from GOP Leadership

Representative Matt Gaetz, a Republican from Florida, expressed enthusiasm over the recent news that Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky has decided to relinquish his leadership role. This announcement is part of a series of significant changes within the Republican Party’s leadership. Gaetz pointed out that McConnell, along with the Chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Ronna McDaniel, and the former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, from California, have all been effectively removed from their positions.

McConnell revealed his intention to step down from his Senate leadership post on Wednesday. Prior to this, McDaniel had announced her resignation, effective March 8, while McCarthy was removed from his role as Speaker of the House last October, following a campaign spearheaded by Gaetz himself.

In a post on X (previously known as Twitter) on Wednesday, Gaetz stated, “We’ve now 86’d: McCarthy, McDaniel, McConnell,” suggesting that the departure of these three leaders signifies a positive turning point for the Republican Party.

Gaetz has publicly celebrated these departures, arguing that the party stands to gain from the absence of these three figures. His ongoing critiques of McCarthy, in particular, underscore a persistent rift between them, rooted in Gaetz’s accusations of McCarthy breaking promises.

This recent development echoes Gaetz’s reaction following the 2022 midterm elections, where the Republican Party did not achieve the expected gains. Gaetz has been vocal in his criticism, summarizing the leadership of McCarthy, McConnell, and McDaniel as failures.
