During a press conference with other newly-elected leaders, McCarthy congratulated the new members of the team and projected confidence the GOP will wield more influence over the chamber during the 117th Congress due to narrow majority 

“It's an honor to stand here today with this team supported by our colleagues to lead the Republican Conference in 117th Congress. I want to congratulate Mike Johnson, and Richard Hudson, who is new to our team in representing with the rest of our colleagues,” he said.  

"We might not be able to schedule the floor, but we will run the floor.”
