Despite a recent reshuffling of leadership positions, reports point to the GOP being more unified than ever. These recent reports acknowledged disagreements between Republican lawmakers, but noted that GOP voters are “united and energized.” They also suggested these voters are doing what it takes to make Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) the next Speaker of the House.
Reports also pointed to blockbuster fundraising efforts by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and GOP candidate recruitment ahead of pace heading into the midterm cycle.

Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) discussed party unity when she took over as conference chair.
“We are unified and I look to the voters across America,” she stated. “Republican voters are unified in their support and their desire to work with President Trump, and we are unified as Republicans.”
Reports also pointed to the unified stance Republicans took toward the conflict in Israel compared to the divide between centrist and left-wing Democrats on Israeli support.
