Rep. McCarthy: You Should Be a Governor Before Being President

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) asserted Thursday that no one should become president without first serving as a governor. 

McCarthy directed his attack at President Obama. He said the president is unwilling to negotiate with Republicans — a skill, McCarthy said, he could have been acquired while running a state. 

“I'm a firm believer that I don't think anyone should become president if they haven’t been a governor first,” he said on MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.”
