While he was serving Eric Cantor, he was among 30 Republicans to take a public trip to Israel. While him and Cantor didn’t technically participate in the swimming, most of the other Republicans had swam in the Sea of Galilee. One member actually skinny dipped.

Republican house leader, Kevin McCarthy was a prominent ally of Donald Trump. Not only did he side with Trump on false allegations of 2020 election fraud, but actually participated in trying to overturn the election in Trump’s favor.
