Scalise vows not to run against McCarthy for House speaker
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.
