House Republicans Seek New Leadership Below Speaker

It is reported by one of my contacts in Washington D.C.
that Representatives Dan Lungren (R-CA) and John
Sweeney(R-NY) are circulating a petition among the House Republican
conference calling for an election for all Republican leadership positions
(excluding the Speaker, who is elected by the full House and not the
Republican Conference). The House Republican Conference(which includes all
House Republican Members of Congress) will meet on February 2.

This is welcome news here considering the problems the current leadership has had making progress in important areas.
