The Hill reports that a "major fight is brewing among conservatives" over who will chair the Republican Study Committee. Reps. Jeb Hensarling of Texas and Todd Tiahrt of Kansas have been seeking support. Rep. Steve King of Iowa is also in the mix.
Remaining RSC founders were expected to nominate Tiahrt, but that seems less certain this week. Many staffers consider Tiahrt as the leadership-backed candidate who "would mute the influence of conservative agitators."
