"Our leadership team, I'm saying", the Wisconsin Republican told NBC News in an exclusive interview released Friday.

"I think we all believe that Kevin is the right person".

Kevin McCarthy to take the top spot in the House when Ryan retires in November.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is reportedly talking about a potential bid to replace outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan.

For one thing, an outside candidate like House Freedom Caucus head Jim Jordan could throw a wrench into the race.

"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad", Trump said.

The leader of the conservative group, Rep. Mark Meadows, has said relations with McCarthy have since improved. Some conservative House members were unhappy with him.

Strategists from both parties say that even if McCarthy gets a boost in funds that he can spread out to other California Republicans, it won't make up for lost financial support from Ryan, and the fact that the speaker's retirement might spook GOP donors.

"I would fully support Jordan", said Jones. And so we have made a difference in this country.

President Donald Trump's thumb on the scale could play a big role in determining who will lead the House Republican conference after November. "The California Teacher Association and the California Labor Federation endorsed our campaign this week; those are the endorsements that matter, not those of Paul Ryan", Matta said.

By advancing their own candidate, the conservatives may not be counting on winning, but that they would certainly influence the outcome of the race, several members said. McCarthy remains a close friend and advisor of President Trump, and it is unlikely the Freedom Caucus would seek a fight with the President. "I think we'll have a seamless transition".

Ryan dismissed the possibility that Democrats would take over the House and pointed to recent accomplishments as evidence the party would keep its majority.
