Leadership musings

We’re hearing from GOP insiders if it’s a big loss, there will probably be total turn-over in the House leadership. Even with a narrow loss, Barton and Pence run against Boehner. Multiple candidates will probably challenge Roy Blunt. Shadegg will be a strong candidate for that spot. And there would be a big race for head of the conference. Even if Pryce holds on tonight, she’ll be challenged for that leadership position (and might not even run for it again). Probable candidates in that race are Marsha Blackburn, Jack Kingston, Adam Putnam, and Mike Rogers. Putnam would be in a strong position to win. This is the sort of speculation that is pre-occupying insiders as they wait for the results…
