The much anticipated House Republican conference meets Thursday to pick a new standard-bearer, prelude to the introduction of a new Speaker of the House.   The session marks the first time in 26-years since the process of electing a new speaker was in the middle of a congressional session. 

To complicate the session more it’s held among a divided group of Republicans. 

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy(R-Calif.) surprisingly dropped out of the race to replace John Boehner(R-Ohio) for speaker. 

The House GOP Conference in which Republicans were scheduled to select their nominee for the House Floor vote on 29 October has officially been postponed.
