Following the uprising in 2021, Thomas appeared on television to express displeasure at his former protege repeating Trump’s “phony lies” about the 2020 election. McCarthy won the House of Representatives election in 2006 and ran unchallenged in 2008 and 2010.

He held the positions of House Majority Leader from 2014 to 2019 and House Minority Leader from 2019 to 2023. McCarthy joined the House Republican Steering Committee as a rookie congressman and went on to serve as the Chief Deputy Whip of the House Republicans from 2009 to 2011 and the House Majority Whip from 2011 to 2014.
