RALEIGH — The U.S. House minority leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, and his political committee, Take Back the House 2022, contributed $133,000 to the North Carolina Republican Party.

“Our path to a Republican majority runs through North Carolina, and I look forward to partnering with chairman Michael Whatley and the North Carolina Republican Party to Take Back the House in 2022,” said McCarthy. “The Democrats’ relentless assault on our American values must stop. Democrats seek to divide us and distract from their policies that are failing America. We, Republicans, are working together to win in 2022 and deliver a safer, stronger, and more optimistic future for all Americans.”

NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley thanked McCarthy for his support, which he says will be used in the state’s 14 Congressional races in 2022.

“North Carolina will be on the frontlines of the Republican effort to take back the House next year, and we are grateful for Leader McCarthy’s early investments in North Carolina and other critical battleground states to ensure Republicans win back control of Congress and put an end to the far left’s disastrous policies,” said Whatley.
