Republican strategist Ford O'Connell joined J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Friday to discuss the win by Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California as the new House majority leader.

"The next five months for Kevin McCarthy are really seen as a trial period because we don't know what's going to happen in the midterm elections," O'Connell said.

"Do the Republicans take the Senate? If they take the Senate, he probably won't be challenged when we get to the next round of elections," he said. "But as of right now, he has to consolidate people's confidence in him. That's where he's trying to head right now."
