Last week in Washington DC, Representative Kevin McCarthy abruptly withdrew from consideration to replace John Boehner as Speaker of the House. It was the latest shock in what has been a series of surprising developments in House leadership.

Now, with no clear replacement for Boehner, speculation is rampant.

One name that has come up is that of Michigan Republican Representative Candice Miller of Shelby Township.
