Starting this thread because it doesn't look like there is anything similar here.

Looks like McCarthy withdrew because he was having an affair:

Either way, our man Jason Chaffetz has a shot now. Even if he doesn't become speaker they now have to pay him to go away

Hope the price he extracts is HR.213

Chaffetz must have balls of steel - going up against the establishment like that. My guess is he knew of McCarthy's affair and thought it was a matter of time before McCarthy flamed out.

But still he went against the establishment and is still standing - so far.

The chase is on for Paul Ryan
By JAKE SHERMAN , JOHN BRESNAHAN and ANNA PALMER 10/08/15 04:41 PM EDT
It's all about Paul Ryan now.
After Rep. Kevin McCarthy abruptly ditched his bid for House speaker, Speaker John Boehner reached out to the Wisconsin Republican and urged him to be the party's white knight. House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers called him, too, as has McCarthy.
Ryan has canceled all of his fundraisers over the next 48 hours.
It's far from certain Ryan will run. He's repeatedly said he's not interested in being speaker. But over the next several hours, it's clear Ryan will feel the full force of the Republican Party pushing him to reconsider.

Our very own Jason Chaffetz suffers from foot in mouth disease
Quote:
The time he undermined his own campaign for the speakership: After McCarthy withdrew from the race, attention naturally turned toward Chaffetz. How did he respond to this potential uplift in his fortunes? He said he was still running for the post, but...he didn't know if he was the right person for the job.
