House Speaker Kevin McCarthy officially opened the 118th Congress early Saturday morning, holding the speaker’s gavel and conducting a chamber-wide swearing-in ceremony for new members.

After a dramatic week, he won over 20 Republicans who had initially opposed his speakership and then defected to other members.

McCarthy celebrated his victory in the final 15th vote. He said: “I hope one thing is crystal clear after this week: My determination to never give up.” I will not give up on you, American citizens. I will not give up on our Commitment To America.”

In his opening remarks, he stated that “Our nation is worth fighting to defend.”
