Hotline Whip Count: GOP Conference Chair

November 11, 2010

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) ended her bid to become House Republican Conference Chair Wednesday night, endorsing Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) in a statement.

"Jeb Hensarling has my enthusiastic support for his candidacy to become Republican House Conference Chair," Bachmann said. "Jeb has demonstrated his commitment to limited government, reduced spending and lower taxes and he will be a strong voice for the Tea Party's call for these values."

Bachmann's campaign for Conference Chair never got very far, as she only announced five endorsements this week. Below is a breakdown of who backed each Republican.
