Hensarling Will Run for Leadership After Elections

"House conservatives fretted their failure to recruit Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) into this week's Republican leadership race, but their misery might not last very long," National Journal reports.

"Hensarling, the popular Texan who passed on the chance to challenge Rep. Kevin McCarthy in Thursday's special election, appears poised to run for one of the top two leadership positions - either speaker or majority leader - in November, according to multiple sources close to the congressman."

Said one GOP source: "He sounds like he's ready to run in the fall."
