No. 2 House Republican: votes not there for 'clean' debt limit bill

WASHINGTON, Oct 20 (Reuters) - U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Tuesday a "clean" bill to raise the U.S. debt limit that did not include sweeteners for Republicans would not win a majority in the House of Representatives.

"I do not see 218 for any clean bill," McCarthy told reporters. (Reporting by Richard Cowan; Writing by Tim Ahmann; Editing by Sandra Maler)
