House GOP Chooses Leaders Today

"House Republicans will decide on Thursday whether to respond to the stunning defeat of Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) by adding a representative from a deep red state to their leadership team," The Hill reports.

"Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) enters the secret ballot as a heavy favorite over Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) to replace Cantor in the second-ranking post, while a three-way race to take his job as the GOP's chief vote counter headed down to the wire."

"Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), the leader of the party's large conservative bloc, is looking to win the whip job outright on a single ballot, while Reps. Peter Roskam (R-IL) and Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) were trying to deny Scalise a majority and push the race to a second vote."
