House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy joined Fox & Friends to discuss the upcoming midterm election.

Excerpts of the interview are below, or watch online here.

On the midterm elections: 
“History is against us. Only two times since World War Two has the party in power that won the White House actually gained seats in these off years. On average they lose more than 30 seats – 23 seats our majority. If the Democrats were able to take this majority, there’s three major things they’d want to do. First, they’d want to abolish ICE as we’ve watched them say many times before. Second, they would really want to impeach this president. I’m in Des Moines, Iowa, at the Iowa State Fair, Tom Steyer is here. Tom Steyer has spend $30 million to impeach the president. He brags on the fact that he has a list bigger than the NRA. Then they want to pretty much end Medicare as we know it. What they want to do is have a government-controlled system. This is the platform of what they’re running on, and what they’re campaigning for.”
