The floor of the U.S. House of Representatives

(Nov. 15, 2022) – “Hannity” host Sean Hannity reported Wednesday night that Republicans will hold the majority in the the House of Representatives in the 118th Congress.

The required 218th seat was decided earlier today amid protracted vote tabulations in some races.

Following his opening monologue, Hannity brought on Rep. Kevin McCarthy (CA23), who has been serving as House Minority Leader for the last four years as Democrats held the majority under Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA12). McCarthy outlined an aggressive agenda for the next House Republican conference and what he said will be a “check” on the one-party control of the federal government over the last two years.

As expected, McCarthy declared his candidacy for Speaker, winning the nomination Wednesday morning. When the new House is seated, a majority must vote in favor of his candidacy for him to assume the gavel from Pelosi.

Four seats in the House are as yet unsettled, McCarthy said, while appearing optimistic that Republicans could win those as well.

In late September McCarthy posted Republicans’ plan, “Commitment to America,” focusing on public safety, a strong economy, censorship and improving healthcare delivery.

Following McCarthy’s interview, Hannity hosted Reps. Jim Jordan and James Comer, both of whom stressed that when the 118th Congress convenes, they plan to launch investigations into Joe Biden’s role in his son Hunter’s overseas business endeavors which appear to have enriched the Biden family by many millions of dollars when Joe Biden was vice president.

On November 10, McCarthy called upon Comer and Jordan to serve as co-chairmen for an Oversight and Accountability Transition Team.

The Senate remains in Democrat hands with 50 affirmed seats and one in Georgia undecided. Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker will face a runoff election December 6 since neither garnered 50% of the vote on November 8.

On Tuesday, 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.
