Congressman Dan Bishop from North Carolina is among the twenty House Republicans who are resisting the elevation of Kevin McCarthy to the position of House Speaker. While these efforts have been criticized in some quarters, Bishop is doing precisely the right thing. The small group is using their leverage to extract important concessions regarding how the House Republican caucus is going to conduct business and lead the chamber.
Bishop is doing the state of North Carolina proud. This is a man who needs to run for US Senate in a Republican primary against Thom Tillis when the time comes.
