Ok, so Eric Cantor says he will stop being Majority Leader on July 31. Who replaces him?
Technically next in line is the #3 in the House, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy of California. Cantor says he’s supports him, which may or may not be a good thing for McCarthy.
Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, a Boehner loyalist, says he’s running. And the Tea Party is lining up behind another Texan — Jeb Hensarling.
