The district's Latino population will keep growing and national pressure will keep building, United Farm Workers President Arturo Rodriguez said Tuesday.

on favorite, and he's unopposed for re election to a fifth term this year. But his rise and his changing district mean he'll have to walk a fine line, and Kibbe notes the House GOP will take new leadership votes after November's election.
Syndicated talk show host Mark Levin last week called him "dimwitted, "pro amnesty" and "disastrous." Talk show host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham said he's "joined at the hip" with Cantor and Boehner on immigration reform.
Rep. Raul Labrador, R Idaho, is McCarthy's only challenger for the House's No. 2 leadership post, arguing McCarthy isn't conservative enough and is too closely aligned with Cantor and Speaker John Boehner, R Ohio.
WASHINGTON, DC JUNE 18: House Republican Whip, Rep. Capitol in Washington, DC. McCarthy is the favorite to be elected to the position of House Majority Leader tomorrow to replace Rep. Eric Cantor (R VA) who was defeated in primary race last week.

elected to Congress just eight years ago, he became part of a trio soon known as the "Young Guns," the faces of a younger generation that would map the GOP's future.
McCarthy said "you're either a thermometer or a thermostat" a thermostat being someone who not only can take a room's temperature but also knows how to change it.
He sees himself as a thermostat. He's an outspoken critic of California's high speed rail project, battles Democrats on the state's water policy, and arguably is the GOP's point man on wooing Silicon Valley. Last year he brought a group of Republican House members from across the nation to tour the area, meeting leading tech entrepreneurs at Google, Facebook and elsewhere. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, now a Stanford professor and Hoover Institution senior fellow. "I admire how he cares deeply about the American people and I know wherever he goes his work will reflect his dedication to serve."
Fleischman said that while some lawmakers tend more toward being policy wonks, "Kevin is the most political member of Congress I've ever met."
but he'll have to walk a fine line
He'll be a GOP leader from one of the nation's most solidly Democratic states in fact, the most powerful House Republican California has ever produced. This might contribute to conservatives' distrust, but might benefit the Golden State's Republican House candidates if he uses his new clout to help them stump and raise money.
"To do the same thing again after the message that grass roots sent in the Cantor race seems crazy to me," said Matt Kibbe, president and CEO of FreedomWorks, a Washington based conservative grass roots group backing Labrador. McCarthy's ascent "doesn't bridge the divide between the younger reform minded members and the GOP establishment," Kibbe said.
Some tea partyers distrust McCarthy for favoring a path to legal status, though not full citizenship, for some undocumented immigrants. But back home, his largely rural district including most of Kern and Tulare counties, with a bit of northeastern Los Angeles County as well is 35 percent Latino, the agriculture heavy business community supports immigration reform and activists picket his office regularly.
"McCarthy could find himself majority leader for a very short period of time and have no chance at the speakership," Rodriguez said. "If he's thinking long term and thinking 'I want to be the speaker at some point,' he'd better focus on representing his constituency."
Yet many prominent conservative pundits don't like him, an antipathy especially visible in recent days.

Now two of those guns have misfired Paul Ryan wounded in his unsuccessful 2012 bid to be vice president, Eric Cantor felled in last week's primary upset in Virginia. But McCarthy is about to complete his transition from young gun to old hand, all but a shoo in to succeed Cantor as majority leader when the GOP caucus votes Thursday.
"In his new role, he's going to be all over the country raising money for candidates, everyone is going to be in his ear seeking to influence him, but the people who are advantaged are the ones who got to know him before he was the big cheese."
