McCarthy, Scalise seen in Paul Ryan succession race

NATION-NOW    
          After Paul Ryan retires Freedom Caucus has power in choosing next speaker        Freedom Caucus has power in choosing next speaker

"What it shows you is that we have an intact leadership team that supports each other, that's all heading in the right direction", he said. California's Kevin McCarthy and Louisiana's Steve Scalise have both made it clear they want the job. Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats to win the House majority in November, and as many as 50 Republican-held seats now are regarded as competitive with voters registering their dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump in primaries and special elections.

When Paul Ryan announced yesterday that he was not seeking re-election to the House seat he's held since first being elected in 1998, he made it clear that he meant to stay on board as Speaker of the House through the end of the current term of Congress. "I want to stay focused on our job".

More than the President, though, the path to the Speakership for McCarthy, Scalise, or anyone else is going to have to run through the House Freedom Caucus.

"We're getting way ahead of ourselves", Scalise said. But that does not address what might happen if a third candidate emerges, and it appears McCarthy can't collect a majority of party votes.

If Scalise can help advance that mission as speaker of the House, it would benefit Louisiana - and America.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has a path to become the next House speaker, and the ultraconservative group that blocked his last bid for the post isn't standing in his way - yet. That means the candidate for speaker must have votes from all or almost all members of the party to get the required total of 50 percent plus at least 1 to become speaker.

Some Republicans are suggesting that Paul Ryan should be pushed out as Speaker before the November elections.

Trump's input will play an "extremely powerful" role as House Republicans weigh the next speaker, Meadows said.

There also is agitation among at least a few Republicans to move Ryan out of the way now rather than wait until after the election.

And an hour after Ryan said he will retire from the Congress in January, Republican Congressman Dennis Ross of Florida also announced that he will not seek re-election.

Noble as it is for Ryan not to run off, rank and file House Republicans likely will force his hand to step down much sooner than that, Axios reports. "I just don't want to be one of those people looking back on my life thinking I spent more time with my kids when I know if I spend another term, they will only know me as a weekend father".

But that scenario depends on Republicans keeping their majority in the US House of Representatives this Fall.

The comments don't necessarily take Scalise out of the running to lead the party, however.
