GOP SHOCKER: Kevin McCarthy drops out of race to replace John Boehner

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has dropped out of the race to succeed House Speaker John Boehner.

"If we are going to unite to be strong, we need a new face to help do that.

"Over the last week it has become clear to me that our Conference is deeply divided and needs to unite behind one leader. I have always put this Conference ahead of myself. Therefore I am withdrawing my candidacy for Speaker of the House.

"I look forward to working alongside my colleagues to help move our Conference’s agenda and our country forward," McCarthy said.
