House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Sunday brushed off Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.)’s threats to oust him from the Speakership, calling it something “personal” with the Florida lawmaker.
“That’s nothing new, he’s tried to do that from the moment I ran for office,” McCarthy said in an interview on CBS News “Face The Nation.”
“I’ll survive, you know this is personal with Matt,” McCarthy said. “Matt voted against the most conservative bill to protect our border…secure border.”
