Congressman Andy Biggs is reportedly considering launching a bid to challenge House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to be Speaker of the House.

Source in closed-door House GOP candidate forum tells me no one got up after McCarthy to challenge him for Speaker. But, could theoretically happen later or tomorrow – Rep. Andy Biggs, rumored to make a bid, told reporters earlier that McCarthy will have a challenger tomorrow.

Reports of Biggs potential candidacy emerged on Sunday amid reports saying that McCarthy might not have the 218 floor votes needed for the title.

An internal leadership election will be held on Tuesday. However, the congressional floor vote will take place in January.

McCarthy has been considered the favorite for House Speaker if Republicans take back the Majority.

However, Biggs has pushed back against this assumption.
