  • Who Is Rumored To Be Next Speaker?

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R) (R-WI) listens as Rep. Kevin McCarthy (L) (R-CA) speaks during a press conference on Capitol Hill September 26, 2017 in Washington, DC.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., endorsed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy for speaker Friday, a move likely meant to clear the field and make way for his top deputy. "I think Kevin's the right guy to step up".

"The president has a great relationship with Kevin McCarthy, but in terms of an announcement on who he wants to see as the next speaker, I don't have any announcements on that", Sanders said. McCarthy backed out of a leadership race three years ago amid similar divisions. When former House Speaker John Boehner resigned, all eyes were on the California Republican.

"What's changed is we have gotten a lot done", Ryan said. Asked if it was his understanding that Scalise felt that McCarthy should assume Ryan's role, the curent House speaker said "that's right".

Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican and prominent member of the libertarian-leaning House Freedom Caucus, has also said he was open to becoming speaker.
