Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Supports Rep. Jody Hice and the House Freedom Caucus

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today responded to Republican leader Kevin McCarthy’s retribution against Rep. Hice by issuing the following statement:

“The new Congress is not even three weeks old, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has already broken his word to his colleagues. At the beginning of the 116th Congress, McCarthy told his fellow members, ‘We are at our best when we focus not on retribution but on building a more perfect union.’ But just days later, Rep. McCarthy targeted Rep. Jody Hice for retribution by stripping Rep. Hice of his position on the Armed Services Committee in retaliation for Rep. Hice’s decision to cast a vote for his fellow House Freedom Caucus member Jim Jordan to be Republican leader.  Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Rep. Hice, and supports all his good work.  If Rep. McCarthy cannot honor his own words and steer clear of retribution, then he’s not the leader Republicans need to lead them back to the majority. These actions bring division at a time when conservatives and Republicans need to be united — that is, if they don’t want to stay in the minority permanently.”
