Tryouts for Speaker Begin Today

McCarthy First Up With Planned Parenthood Defund


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 25, 2015

St. Louis, MO: With Speaker John Boehner announcing his intention to resign at the end of October, Phyllis Schlafly released the following statement:

“The next Republican Speaker of the House must be willing to fight for the principles of America; not simply be a caretaker for the establishment Republicans. Tryouts for the job begin today,” said Phyllis Schlafly, founder of Eagle Forum.

“First up is Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy who must lead the fight to defund Planned Parenthood in the coming weeks. If McCarthy cannot deliver on this commonsense action, then he is unqualified for Speaker. We wish him well in this tryout.”
