Will Ryan Be Forced Out Of The Speakership Before The Election?

Trump to huddle with super PAC backers over dinner

"Scalise, as the lead Republican vote counter, is the member of GOP leadership whom most rank-and-file members interact with on a routine basis, and his Capitol office suite tends to be a hub for lawmakers when the House is in session".

"It's common knowledge. You would think if there's a pecking order it would be the next man up", Walker said.

This morning Speaker Ryan shared with his colleagues that this will be his previous year as a member of the House. "He's someone that the president likes, admires and respects, and has confidence in".

Jordan, R-Ohio, said the Freedom Caucus, a staunchly conservative group of about three dozen House Republicans, hasn't decided who they'd throw their support behind. But he was one of Trump's earliest and most loyal congressional supporters in the 2016 presidential race.

He threw six innings, allowing three runs on four hits with two walks and four strikeouts as the Yankees picked up an 8-3 victory. Porcello has been strong in his first two starts of the year while Gray has struggled against the Red Sox in his career.

Those close to Scalise say he is unlikely to directly challenge McCarthy. No doubt, the Caucus will seek to use this fact as a means of gaining leverage and power within the Caucus and the price that they are likely to ask would likely include chairmanships (or Ranking Member if the GOP ends up the minority) of key House committees as well as leadership slots for some of the top members of the Freedom Caucus itself.

For now, McCarthy and Scalise are seen as the chief contenders. Bishop has said his next term in Congress will be his last. The GOP members elected in November will choose the next speaker if the party retains a majority.

"In terms of getting things like coastal erosion, infrastructure projects, projects that require a large amount of money from the federal appropriation bills, but even if Republicans did lose control of the House, certainly as minority leader he would still have a great deal of influence over the appropriations process", said Collins. After almost twenty years in the House, the speaker is proud of all that has been accomplished and is ready to devote more of his time to being a husband and a father. That's because most of the retiring Republicans tend to be more center-right members.

"It's time for a reset and a refocus on one primary objective: doing what the American people elected us to do, doing what we told them we were going to do", Jordan said. "In order to have a conversation about who is the next Speaker - we have to be in the majority". It also called for "significant changes to conference leadership", a similar request to Jordan's concerns Wednesday.
