The House Republican Conference Thursday gave Kevin McCarthy a full term as majority leader for the 114th Congress.  

McCarthy took over for Eric Cantor after the former leader retired this summer, after losing a GOP primary race.  

The California Republican was elected by voice vote and members reported the decision was unanimous. Related:
