Scalise vows not to run against McCarthy for House speaker

The Signal - - USA TODAY - From staff and wire re­ports

Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said again Tues­day he will not run against Rep. Kevin McCarthy for speaker of the House.

Scalise said the GOP ma­jor­ity leader from Cal­i­for­nia would be good in the House’s top lead­er­ship post. “He’s got a very good re­la­tion­ship with Pres­i­dent Trump,” Scalise said at a Politico Play­book panel in Wash­ing­ton.

Scalise has been touted as a pos­si­ble suc­ces­sor to Speaker Paul Ryan, who is not seek­ing re-elec­tion.
