BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – With Republicans recently in the majority in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy is already gearing up for 2024.
In McCarthy’s first major fundraiser since becoming president, he says he brought in $12 million in one night to increase the GOP’s majority in next year’s election.
McCarthy also launched a new joint fundraising committee called “Protect the House” aimed at raising money for House Republicans who could flip Democrats next year.
Hanford Congressman David Valadao is one of the House Republicans involved in the new fundraising committee.
Meanwhile, both Valadao and McCarthy plan to attend the World Ag Expo in Tulare County on Tuesday to meet with voters about the Farm Bill reauthorization.
