Scalise Says He Won't Run Against McCarthy For House Speaker

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), are the clear frontrunners in this contact.

A popular front runner is U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, a Metairie Republican and now the third most powerful U.S. representative.

After the comments, Scalise told Fox News that he would not run against McCarthy. "So I think there's going to be a lot of pressure on Kevin McCarthy to step aside", said Dr. Robert Collins of Dillard University in New Orleans.

Both the candidates, McCarthy and Scalise have praised Ryan for his services in the Congress.

Ryan announced on Wednesday that he would not be seeking reelection come November, but maintained that he would stay in the House through the midterm elections.

Ryan had announced that he will be retiring from the Congress on Wednesday, bringing his three-year job as a speaker to an end.

If Scalise does become House Speaker, politicians generally agree that would be good for Louisiana, even those on the other side of the aisle.




"Steve Scalise is very popular among his colleagues and he's very high profile", said DuBos. Scalise has more appeal among the aforementioned Freedom Caucus wingnuts, but he's also seen as a loyal chain-of-command type, and has pledged not to mount a direct challenge to McCarthy.

Meadows said McCarthy has been "reaching out, trying to keep his promises to a number of members of the House Freedom Caucus that will serve him well in whatever race should he throw his hat in the ring".

As Paul Ryan begins his search for a private-sector role in which to continue his life's work of making America a more inhospitable place for poor people, his reeling caucus begins its search for its next leader. We passed good bills in the House to address numerous problems facing our country domestically and in foreign policy.

But Ryan is the 24th House Republican to retire this term, a record.

Our sources say that could pull an already divided conference even further apart. And while Ryan's current position is one for which legislators of any persuasion would sell at least one of their children, whether his replacement will get to retain the Speaker's gavel or glumly add "House Minority Leader" to their résumé rests entirely on what happens on Election Day.

"I think who the next Speaker will be, will certainly be decided before November", stated Meadows.
