Sarbanes Statement on Vote to Remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Today, Congressman John Sarbanes (MD-03) issued the following statement after voting to remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House:

"The people of Maryland's Third Congressional District elected me to represent their best interests in Congress and their best interests are not served by Kevin McCarthy's leadership. Due to his failure to demand accountability for those who sought to undermine our democracy on January 6th and his refusal to uphold the bipartisan budget agreement that Congress reached earlier this year, I voted to remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House."
