Is Kevin McCarthy Resigning Altogether? [updated]

Since before I went on my radio show today at 5pm ET, reporters and Hill staffers have been buzzing me that McCarthy is going to resign altogether.

Again, just a rumor, but even now at 10:30pm I am still getting pinged by people saying it will happen tomorrow.

These rumors are so funny. They set off like wild fire and burn. But I am rather surprised by the people telling me this. These aren’t the types to buy into these things.

I’m so glad I don’t live in Washington.

UPDATE: McCarthy will not be resigning. I’m told he announced that to his colleagues this morning.
