Rep. Gimenez took to social media to air his staunch support for McCarthy. In his post, Gimenez voiced his disappointment over the lack of party unity displayed by eight of his colleagues who, according to him, aligned with the ‘socialists’ in Congress to unseat the ‘duly-elected’ Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy—a move he finds unacceptable.

“For the record, I’ve always been OK. Only Kevin. 8 colleagues joined all the socialists in Congress to remove our duly-elected Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy — that should have never happened in the first place,” he wrote.

Only Kevin. I’m voting for our duly-elected Republican Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, who should have never been removed to begin with.”

In an interview, Gimenez maintained his firm position, expressing disdain for what he perceives as tactics of ‘pressure and intimidation and misinformation’ stemming from the camp of Jim Jordan, although he clarified that he is not accusing Jordan directly but pointing fingers at his supporters.

“Right now, I’m not changing my position. And I think that Jim Jordan’s tactics of pressure and intimidation and misinformation I’m not saying that he did it, but his supporters surely has not helped Jim Jordan,” he said.

In an interview with Elizabeth MacDonald on Fox News Sunday, Gimenez voiced his frustration over the ouster of McCarthy and blamed Matt Gaetz for allegedly causing chaos on the House.
