Kevin McCarthy Remains In Limbo On Speakership Bid

California Congressman Kevin McCarthy, who has for years lusted for the Speakership of the House of Representatives, is now facing the reality that he may not be elected by the Republican caucus on opening day of the 118th Congress, January 3, 2023.

It seems more likely that second ranking Republican Steve Scalise of Louisiana may become the alternative choice, seemingly acceptable to all elements of the Republican Party in the House of Representatives.

It certainly seems clear that McCarthy, even if elected, may not survive the entire two year term of the 118th Congress!
