What is the future for the Republican Party?

“Kevin McCarthy thus far in order to become speaker of the House has clearly made more deals with more people on both sides of the ideological floor that it’s going to condemn his speakership if he does become speaker. It’s going to be like an anchor around his neck. He won't be able to function. He won’t be able to legislate. The second thing it seems to a lot of people is more mysterious and hard to define and it lies in the fact that Donald Trump not for the first time at dinner at Mar-a-Lago but for the past few years has opened the door of the Republican Party to white nationalists and white nationalism. And it’s going to remain to be seen exactly what happens to the party going forward. Do they increase a new constituency—white nationalists? Do they try to reclaim another constituency—older Republicans who have voted for a Republican Party now totally disappeared. That’s going to be an interesting equation to watch,” says Mike Barnicle during this Morning Joe conversation with Joe Scarborough, Willie Geist and Mika Brzezinski about House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy struggling to secure votes to become House speaker and the future of the Republican Party.
