BREAKING NEWS: House GOP Conference Elects Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as new Majority Leader

From FNC’s Chad Pergram:

Defeats Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), a favorite of many hardline conservatives.

Will take over from current Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) at end of July.

With McCarthy’s promotion, this means we have a race for Whip now…between Reps. Pete Roskam (R-IL), Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Marlin Stutzman (R-IN).
