Projected to win reelection to represent the Congressional 23rd District, Congressman Kevin McCarthy posted an acceptance message Wednesday morning.

In a post on social media, McCarthy said, "To the voters of 23rd district — I want to express my most sincere appreciation for the honor to represent our community in Congress. As your representative I will continue to fight for commonsense solutions to restore our way of life, rebuild our economy, and renew the American dream for all.

"That starts with securing more water, taking care of our veterans, and fighting back against Sacramento's liberal agenda. Let's get to work!"
