The boys over at RedState are now officially pushing the candidacy of Rep. John Shadegg for Republican Majority Leader in the House.
Shadegg has been speaking a bit more in the past couple of days, talking about his consultation with his fellow members. But we’re hearing that Shadegg intends to make a formal annoucement within the next 24 hours.
Supporters of both current candidates for the job — Reps. John Boehner and Roy Blunt — have been speaking with Shadegg since Monday in an attempt to head him off from entering the race. It isn’t clear that either man would lose a huge number of commitments to Shadegg, but probably enough to make their own election a bit more questionable.
