Hot Topic:
U.S. House of Representatives'
next speaker



Dr. Adam Myers is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Providence College.


According to a recent report from Reuters, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote to elect its next speaker on Oct. 29. and with Republicans in turmoil, retiring House Speaker John Boehner delayed the voting for other party leadership races.

This week, House Republicans will meet privately to choose their party's nominee for speaker. The entire House - both Republicans and Democrats - will then vote in an open session three weeks later.

House Majority Leader Republican Kevin McCarthy of California remains the favorite to replace Boehner, who announced on Sept. 25 he is resigning after a series of battles with conservatives in the Republican caucus.

Dr. Adam Myers, an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Providence College, says the current leadership struggle in the U.S. House has huge ramifications for how it will conduct business in the future.
