House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said he wants a Republican to be the next speaker of the House and not Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during an interview on Thursday.

Following Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) announcement that he would be retiring from politics after this year, there has been speculation that either McCarthy or Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) would replace Ryan.

Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade asked McCarthy how much being the next speaker would mean to him.

“What means most to me is that, in the next Congress, there is an opportunity for a Republican to be speaker and not Nancy Pelosi,” McCarthy said.
