DNC Statement Ahead of Kevin McCarthy’s Speech in South Carolina

Ahead of Kevin McCarthy’s speech at the South Carolina GOP Silver Elephant Dinner, DNC spokesperson Ammar Moussa released the following statement:

“South Carolina Republicans’ welcoming of Kevin McCarthy tonight is no surprise given how they’ve rallied around an agenda of cutting Social Security and Medicare and possibly passing a national abortion ban if they take the majority in November. After leading Republicans’ opposition to bills protecting a woman’s right to birth control and the right to access reproductive care, McCarthy’s speech tonight will highlight yet again how GOP extremism is too dangerous for families in South Carolina and across the country.”
