Lone freshman GOP holdout gives ‘attaboy’ to McCarthy but vows to still keep close eye on leadership

Arizona GOP Rep. Eli Crane, the lone freshman lawmaker who opposed Kevin McCarthy as Speaker, gave the Speaker an “attaboy and props for releasing the January 6 tapes to [Tucker] Carlson.” Crane remarks, that this is a “massive, massive move” in transparency for the American people and comes at a time when trust and confidence in the government has “really been diminished in this country.” Though the lawmaker maintains that he has seen “some backsliding and just a return in ways towards business as usual,” he vows to “continue to monitor that and work on," delivering on the promises that Americans sent them to Washington to deliver on.
