Kentucky Race May Roil GOP

The final seat in the hierarchy, the Conference vice chairmanship, is likely to attract a race. Burr, Isakson and Coleman are considered likely contenders for that post, along with Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Mel Martinez (Fla.).

Another aide said that regardless of how the leadership races shake out, there will be a desire to “more quickly and decisively” project calm and order. That will be particularly true, this staffer said, if the Democrats win the White House on Nov. 4.

“We won’t have time to fight amongst ourselves,” this staffer said. “The Obama administration would likely transition quickly and, by controlling the House, be ready to jam stuff through. Our guys need to be organized and back on the offense immediately after this election.”
