Republicans Pick McCarthy as Majority Leader

"Republican members of the House elected Kevin McCarthy to be the next majority leader, sending a message of stability to their party in a time of unexpected unrest," Roll Call reports.

National Journal: "Shortly after McCarthy's victory, Republicans elected Rep. Steve Scalise to replace him as whip. Scalise was the front-runner throughout the three-man race between him, Rep. Peter Roskam, and Rep. Marlin Stutzman; the only question was whether Scalise could win an outright majority on the first ballot and avoid an unpredictable head-to-head contest with either Roskam or Stutzman."
