US House Speaker McCarthy hopes to ‘get back on right track’ after Conservative revolt


(Reuters) – U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said on Sunday he hoped to get back on the right track after a conservative revolt paralyzed the Republican Party’s efforts to advance its agenda in Washington.

The standoff between McCarthy and a hardline faction of his own Republican majority has forced the chamber into a holding pattern.

“Hopefully this week we get back on the right track,” he told Fox News.
