Bakersfield Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Mike Pence to Attend Malibu Fundraiser This Month

Ryan backs Mc Carthy for Speaker He's 'the right person' Greg Nash

After the Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) was unable to gain enough support to succeed Boehner, Ryan was chosen as a compromise candidate.

If McCarthy and Pelosi do end up holding the top House leadership spots for their respective parties next year, it would be the first time in history that the House speaker and House minority leader represented the same state.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is backing Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy as his successor.

"I was encouraged that Steve Scalise this morning said that he thinks that after the election that Kevin McCarthy ought to be the person to replace me", Ryan told reporters. "I fully anticipate handing the gavel over to the next speaker of the House after this term, and I think Kevin's the right guy to step up".

Majority Whip Steve ScaliseStephen (Steve) Joseph ScaliseMcCarthy says early leadership election to replace Ryan unlikely Ryan rebuffs calls that he make a speedier exit The Hill's 12:30 Report MORE (R-La.) has also expressed openness to running for the position, but said this week he would not run against McCarthy. He was the Republican Party nominee for Vice President in 2012. Now McCarthy needs to work hard to win over the House Freedom Caucus, the most conservative faction among House Republicans, numbering 40 members.

He had asked them not to lose hope, promising that his administration will ensure the girls are set free and brought back to them. The relentless onslaughts show not even children and schools are spared from Boko Haram's wrath - rather, they are the targets.


Republicans face hard election season in which President Donald Trump's unpopularity and a wave of Democratic enthusiasm are expected to cost the GOP House seats.

"What's changed is we have gotten a lot done", Ryan said. Speaker Ryan has offered his support for McCarthy as well.

But Scalise hasn't ruled out seeking the job if McCarthy fails to nail down the 218 votes that will be needed to elect a speaker when the new Congress convenes in January.

According to sources, the California representative told the President he wants the job. McCarthy remains a close friend and advisor of President Trump, and it is unlikely the Freedom Caucus would seek a fight with the President.
