House Republicans elect McCarthy, Scalise to lead party in wake of Cantor loss

Newly elected House Majority Leader McCarthyConservative Republicans ousted Majority Leader Eric Cantor from Congress, but they couldn’t prevent his establishment heir apparent from taking over his leadership position. On Thursday, the House Republican conference voted to promote Kevin McCarthy of California, who had been the chamber’s No. 3 Republican, to majority leader. McCarthy beat a conservative challenger, Raul Labrador of Idaho, whose bid had been viewed as largely symbolic. Labrador had only entered the race after several other prominent conservative lawmakers dropped out of the race, so that McCarthy would not run unopposed.
