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.

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.
