Ryan anoints McCarthy as his successor

Paul Ryan Backing Kevin McCarthy as House Speaker

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., endorsed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy for speaker Friday, a move likely meant to clear the field and make way for his top deputy.

"I think we all believe that Kevin is the right person", the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview that aired Friday. And it already seems like Freedom Caucus co-founder Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is looking to shake up the race.

McCarthy, 53, has represented California in Congress since 2007.

The 53-year-old was first elected to the House of Representatives in California's 22nd District in 2006 with more than 70% of the vote.

Other conservatives who are not members of the Freedom Caucus, such as Walter Jones of North Carolina, also said they would support Jordan if he ran.

With Republicans gearing up for a tough midterm election this fall in which their majority is at stake, Ryan suggested he wanted to head off a potentially destructive internecine battle.

Ryan predicted that McCarthy could get enough votes from his caucus because the Republican Party has proven it can work together to pass tax reform.

Keven McCarthy in his Washington D.C. office in 2012, when the U.S. Government was being closed down as a tactic by the Republicans during the Obama presidency.

White House Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the President and McCarthy "have a great relationship", but did not say who he wants to fill the role.

"Right now, we all need to be focused on getting our job done, getting our economy back on track, working with [President] Trump to continue on the progress we've made, and then make sure we hold the majority", said Scalise in a statement.

Right now, the race is between Scalise and McCarthy (with McCarthy poised to come out on top), but there's a possibility we could be talking about a whole other set of players after November 6, 2018. "We all know that I did not seek this job, I took it reluctantly but I have given this job everything that I have". He remained Majority Leader.
