Gaetz’s war against McCarthy could leave Dems playing kingmaker
Gaetz's campaign against McCarthy could potentially result in Democrats playing a decisive role in the matter. As the deadline for a government shutdown looms, Gaetz surprised a Democratic colleague by approaching them on the House floor with a proposition. Gaetz explained that his rebellion against McCarthy stems from his desire for new leadership that upholds their promises, speaks the truth, and adheres to regular procedures. The Democratic colleague described Gaetz's message as "completely reasonable."
