McCarthy Undecided

Congressman Kevin McCarthy, who is House Majority Whip, said that he is undecided on how he will vote for using force in Syria. As the third Republican in leadership, House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor need him on board to get Republicans to vote for using force in Syria. Many Republicans are still looking for a clear strategy and more communication with the Obama administration before they decide how to vote. McCarthy’s office said they fully respect Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor’s decision to support military force, but he is going to use the information he learned today at the White House and think about it more before he chooses sides.
