Who Will Succeed John Boehner?

Now the race is on to find a successor to John Boehner as Speaker of the House. His right-hand man Kevin McCarthy is the favorite, and has already declared for the position.

But though McCarthy apparently gets along better than Boehner did with the young, conservative hardliners, he essentially is pretty much similar on the issues. Regardless, there looks to be a push for some significant reshuffling in the ranks, perhaps in the Majority or Whip positions.

Whoever gets the Speaker nod, things are pretty fractious in the party right now. As the saying goes, be careful what you ask for.
