    ‘Matt sure knows how to troll’: Gaetz stands by endorsement of Kevin McCarthy as RNC chair – By Mia McCarthy (Politico) / Feb 7, 2024

    “The tweet speaks for itself,” Gaetz told POLITICO.

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Wednesday stood by his recent endorsement of nemesis Kevin McCarthy for chair of the Republican National Committee — even as some of his Republican colleagues suggested it was a joke.

    “The tweet speaks for itself,” Gaetz repeatedly told POLITICO on Wednesday when asked about the endorsement he posted on social media Tuesday night.

    The former speaker’s name was floated on X, formerly known as Twitter, as a “dark horse” option to replace Ronna McDaniel as Republican National Committee chair, who is rumored to be stepping down. But Gaetz threw a curveball on Tuesday night after posting a glowing endorsement for McCarthy as RNC chair.

    “I fully endorse Kevin McCarthy for RNC Chair. Kevin is well organized and a very high-revenue fundraiser,” Gaetz posted on X. “He will also be well-liked by the RNC Committee.”
