According to a Decision Desk HQ estimate one week after Election Day, Kevin Kiley (R-CA), previous President Donald Trump’s candidate in California’s third voting district, trounced his Democrat challenger on Tuesday, solidifying the Republican Party’s House majority.
Kiley’s election was called after the Republicans won five crucial House districts in Arizona and California on Monday evening.
During his candidacy, Kiley urged a GOP-controlled House to get back to Trump’s initiatives.
In March, Kiley told Breitbart News:
“If we have a majority in Congress, we’ll need to bring forward measures that would restore us to those Trump-era policies that were driving our nation in the right direction to attempt to genuinely get our economy back on track again, to attempt to return control to our borders, to cut taxes.”
Despite underperforming forecasts, the Republican Party only required a net gain of five seats to capture the House majority. As of Tuesday, Democrats had called 205 races.
Republican Reps. David Valadao (R-CA) Mike Garcia (R-CA), and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) are still in the lead in their campaigns, which could increase the Republican majority to 221 if they win.
House Republicans nominated Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to be Speaker of the House on Tuesday; he garnered 188 votes vs Rep. Andy Biggs’ (R-AZ) 31 votes.
McCarthy will have until Jan. to collect the 218 votes needed to be elected as speaker.
Republicans will also have control over the numerous House committees that play a crucial role in investigations now that they have the majority.
McCarthy has also already discussed with senior House Republicans the possibility of coordinating probes across committees, including one into Pres. Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
McCarthy also urged senior Republicans on House committees to write letters to the Biden admin. agencies requesting documents be turned over or preserved.
According to the Washington Post, House Republicans have already issued over 500 requests to agencies.

First I read that Jakeem has won the speakership. Now I hear it is Kevin. Which is correct?
McCarthy is the Speaker of the House, Jeffries is the Minority Leader of the House or he is expected to be the Minority selection anyway… Oh yeah, BUCK joe fiden!!!
Since Biden took office; “illegally”, I noticed the complete, udder disconnect between our so called representatives, president & the media, they have no idea the damage they have infested upon the American citizen. Who in the right mind thought the so called; “Green Plan” , could be immediately implemented, without thought of the damage it would cause in: energy, fuel, currency, food, supplies & infrastructure which we’re still waiting on! All these pipe dreams are causing the $32TRILLION in debt! DC is so out of touch, Tech & the Media are all walking a thin line of destruction of the United States of America! What’s worst is they don’t care cause it fills there pockets!!!!
The U.S. Senate is a wall between the House of Representatives & the President. They are bracing themselves now, for anything and everything, that the House is planning. I assure you that every proposal that will be sent forward to the Senate, will be squashed by the stinking Demoncrat Senators and Turn-coat Rinos’ ! Our country is still left with their dirty strangling fingers about its throat! These socialists, communists and fascists will still not stop, until our democratic republic and our constitution is destroyed. We are going to be stuck again with fighting, that will stymie progress of any kind, for businesses and legal citizens of this country! If you think that what little the republicans won during this election is going to change things, you’re right. Problem is it’s going to be like slapping a vicious dog. He (the democrats) will just become angrier and, set out to tear us to pieces. These people hate this country so much, they are ready to lay all of us down before our enemies and let them become our task masters! His Senators have already assured Biden that he has nothing to fear, because they’ll shield him from every attack.
Think a minute of all the countries whose leaders hate us. They are salivating for the chance to help destroy us!
