California Republicans, who had a really bad midterm election, did get one good piece of news today, as Kevin McCarthy was elected House Minority Leader in a surprisingly easy 159-43 victory over conservative leader Jim Jordan of OH, a founding member of the ever-fractious House Freedom Caucus.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy was elected House minority leader Wednesday in a closed-door meeting of House Republicans, putting the California Republican in position to lead House GOP members after Speaker Paul Ryan leaves Capitol Hill at the end of his term in January. Mr. Trump calls him "My Kevin", and McCarthy's name is sometimes mentioned as a potential replacement if the president were to replace his chief of staff.
Democrat Katie Porter captured a Republican-held U.S. House seat Thursday in the heart of what once was Southern California's Reagan country, extending a rout of the state's GOP House delegation that might not be over.
"Congressman McCarthy is one of the foremost champions of 'Micah's Law, ' compassionate, popular legislation to stop painful late-term abortions after five months of pregnancy, which passed with overwhelming support in the House past year under his leadership".

Sen. John Thune of South Dakota took over as Republican whip from Sen.
McCarthy told reporters before the party elections that "we've got a plan" to counter Democrats in the next two years.
The Democratic group includes a number of members-elect who saw historic victories for diversity in the USA, including Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who became the first Muslim women to be elected into Congress, and Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland, who became the first Native American women to be elected into Congress. Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina was elected Republican Conference Vice Chair and Rep. Jason Smith of Missouri became Republican Conference Secretary. They installed Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming as House Republican Conference chairman, as her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, sporting a cowboy hat, looked on.
