The news that Paul Ryan is retiring could be a boon for Doug Collins.
Gainesville’s finest congressman is currently the vice chair of the House Republican Conference.
Before Ryan’s news was official, the second- and third-ranking House Republicans were already allegedly jockeying for the Speakership. And with the increasing specter of a Democratic takeover of congress, the GOP caucus leadership could have even more turnover.
At the very least, Collins seems poised to be the next chair of the Conference–not a bad title indeed. Could he have an even better one in a few months time?
