McCarthy out, Boehner in?

Scott Thomas

9th October 2015

Last night Kevin McCarthy, the current House Majority Leader, and favourite to be the next Speaker, dropped out of the race. His campaign had experience a number of gaffes including the suggestion that the infamous Benghazi Committee is focusing on ruining Hilary Clinton's Presidential Campaign. With McCarthy gone and the vote postponed, we could see Boehner weilding the gavel for a little while longer.
