Paul Ryan endorses Kevin McCarthy as next speaker

Who Is Rumored To Be Next Speaker?

House Speaker Paul Ryan endorsed Kevin McCarthy, saying he's the "right person" to lead the GOP.

"We've all discussed this, and we think the smart thing to do is to actually stay an intact leadership team", Speaker Ryan told NBC's "Meet the Press". "I fully anticipate handing the gavel over to the next speaker of the House after this term, and I think Kevin's the right guy to step up".

Bakersfield Congressman and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy reacted to President Trump's announcement regarding airstrikes in Syria. Jordan is a leader of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus.

"We have a good relationship with Kevin, we have a good relationship with Scalise but we don't even know who else is running", the senior official said. He pulled out of a previous bid for House speaker in 2015 after he publicly suggested that a congressional panel investigating the deadly 2012 attack on USA facilities in Libya aimed to hurt Democrat Hillary Clinton's presidential chances. By leveraging their votes for influence, the group potentially may turn an internal party contest into a public free-for-all.

"We have made a huge positive difference in people's lives, and people are more confident as a result of it", Ryan said.

Russian Federation bans Telegram encrypted messaging app
Telegram was still available late Friday afternoon in Russian Federation , several hours after the court ruling. Durov, the Telegram founder , posted about the ruling on his VKontakte page, Russia's largest social network.

There was no immediate response from the offices of McCarthy or Scalise on Jordan's possible candidacy.

"With the Democrats clearly enjoying a tailwind heading into the midterms, the forthcoming GOP leadership battle is likely to result in deciding the next House minority leader", said Isaac Boltansky, an analyst at the political research firm Compass Point.

According to sources, the California representative told the President he wants the job.

By advancing their own candidate, the conservatives may not be counting on winning, but that they would certainly influence the outcome of the race, several members said. "We all know that I did not seek this job, I took it reluctantly but I have given this job everything that I have".

Many Republicans see maintaining control of the House as their biggest concern, a goal that could be more hard amid an intraparty fight.
