House Speaker Race Enters Murky Territory as Key Players Emerge

The race to succeed ousted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy took unexpected turns over the weekend, leaving the GOP in a complex situation. House Republican Study Committee Chair Kevin Hern withdrew from the initial race, citing concerns about division.

He remains open to candidacy if front-runners Reps. Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan fail to secure consensus. Scalise, backed by significant endorsements, faces a formidable opponent in Jordan, supported by former President Donald Trump.

The closed-door meeting on Tuesday may not yield a winner, potentially leading to the consideration of alternative candidates like Hern or Rep. Patrick McHenry. The outcome remains uncertain as both contenders face challenges and internal divisions within the party persist.
