Will GOP leader Kevin McCarthy back Marjorie Taylor Greene's primary challenger, too? National Review asks

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) distanced himself Monday from the "unacceptable" participation of two GOP lawmakers, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Rep. Paul Gosar (Ariz.), in a white nationalist event in Florida on Friday. At one point during the America First Political Action Conference, organizer Nick Fuentes backed Russia's Ukraine invasion, saying "they're going on about Russia and Vladimir Putin is Hitler — and they say that's not a good thing." Right before Greene took the stage, Fuentes led a chant for Putin.

"There's no place in our party for any of this," McCarthy told reporters. "The party should not be associated, any time, any place, with somebody who is anti-Semitic" or leads chants for Putin. He said he will "have a discussion" with Greene and Gosar.
