As Flores Wins RSC Race, Tension Simmers Between Leaders and Conservatives

Result fuels dissension, as Mulvaney's supporters accuse leadership of meddling in contest.

WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 04: U.S. Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX) calls on the Senate pass the budget that cleared the House last April during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol October 4, 2011 in Washington, DC. Noting that the Senate has not passed a budget in 888 days, Flores and fellow House GOP freshmen put forward their 'Operation Turnaround,' a slate of 12 House-passed bills they say will spur job growth, reduce regulation, shrink the national debt and balance the budget.
