David Giglio, a California Republican affiliated with Trump, has declared his intention to contest the re-election of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. McCarthy is unreservedly criticized by Giglio, who characterizes him as a failure who has cashed in with special interests. He declares himself a "America First" Republican committed to serving the Central Valley residents.

Giglio is distinguished by his endorsement of the eight Republicans who cast a vote to remove McCarthy from his position as speaker. McCarthy is accused of cooperating excessively with Democrats and President Joe Biden, while praise for their bravery is extended to McCarthy. Giglio specifically objects to a bipartisan expenditure agreement ratified by McCarthy in the absence of other Republican leaders' knowledge. McCarthy-like career politicians should be replaced with America First Republicans who secure the southern border, halt the weaponization of government, drain the corrupt cesspool, and eradicate permanent Washington, according to Giglio.
While McCarthy maintains his intention to seek re-election, Giglio is cognizant of the formidable challenge that he confronts. McCarthy is a leading Republican fundraiser and enjoys broad recognition. Despite this, Giglio remains undeterred. By demonstrating unwavering allegiance to Trump and confronting established norms, he hopes to garner the interest and backing of constituents residing in the 20th Congressional District of California.
