Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said, during an interview on Sunday, that Republican leadership in the House all agree Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) should be the next leader of the House GOP.

Ryan announced earlier in the week that he will be retiring from politics once his term is completed at the end of the year.

NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Ryan whether he prefers McCarthy or Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) to take his place after he retires.

“I think we all believe Kevin is the right person,” Ryan said.

Ryan then explained that he was speaking for the entire Republican leadership in the House, which includes Scalise.

“I think Kevin is the right guy to step up,” Ryan said.
