House GOP to Hold 'Special' Meeting Today; Rumors Fly About Cantor's Exit

Action is moving fast on the Hill.

House Republican leadership informed its members Wednesday afternoon that they would be convening a "Special GOP Conference" meeting at 4 p.m., prompting senior Hill staffers to wonder—and in some cases assume—that Majority Leader Eric Cantor will be stepping aside today.

Cantor is expected to address the meeting, according to GOP sources, and Speaker John Boehner and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy are expected to play supporting roles. But little is known beyond that.

One senior Republican aide, noting that at least one person—Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas—is already running for Cantor's job, said he expected Cantor would step aside and endorse the promotion of McCarthy, his closest friend in Congress. "That's what I suspect," the aide said.
