Washington, D.C. – Speaker Kevin McCarthy (CA-20) issued the following statement regarding Majority Leader Steve Scalise’s health update:
Steve is a dear friend, and anyone who knows him knows he’s a faith-filled fighter who can overcome any obstacle that stands in his way. I spoke with him today and he’s in good spirits, as nothing—not a gunshot and certainly not cancer—will stop him from accomplishing what he sets his mind to.
House Republicans are proud to have the Legend from Louisiana as our Majority Leader. I wish him a speedy treatment as we continue to work together to get our country back on track and keep our Commitment to America.
I invite everyone in the nation to keep Steve and his family in your prayers.
