Hensarling Will Not Run for House Majority Leader

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) "will not run for House majority leader in next week's special election," National Journal reports.

Hensarling's decision is a blow to House conservatives, as he was the last of their preferred candidates to be seriously considering a run against Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

The competitive leadership race is now to replace McCarthy as House Majority Whip.
