With Boehner’s resignation less than a week ago, hardline conservatives are jumping at the opportunity for change. The GOP realizes that Boehner didn’t simply retire; the former Speaker left as he couldn’t muster the support he needed from his own party. There is an obvious divide in the Republican Party with evangelicals, libertarians, conservatives, and tea party members all fighting for the number one and two spots, Speaker and House Majority Leader. A new wave of rigid conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas sees this division as an easy way for Democrats, like Hillary Clinton to nab the Presidential election. Soaring poll numbers for Trump, Carson, and Fiorina in the GOP Presidential race, however, prove that there is growing support for Washington outsiders. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, in announcing his candidacy for the Speaker position, aims to “heal the divisions” in the Republican Party. Conservatives in the party are critical saying that McCarthy would be “just another Boehner,” failing to aggressively fight the Obama administration on key issues like immigration and defunding Planned Parenthood. As the week progressed, McCarthy's candidacy for Speaker came under fire. On Wednesday, the would-be Boehner replacement praised the House Select Committee which investigated the 2012 Benghazi attacks for weakening Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, "what are her numbers today, her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she's untrustable." As a result the speaker-in-waiting got in trouble for politicizing the investigation of an attack that left four Americans dead and suggesting that the investigation was politically motivated. Either way, now many are rightly questioning whether McCarthy is still the right man for the job.
