The Battle for the Soul of the Party

With Republican battles for the top party leadership positions in the House of Representatives having been resolved in favor of the status quo, The Hill reports that infighting continues between young conservative insurgents determined to return the party to fundamental principles and the moribund party establishment responsible for the public's perception that the party has lost its soul. The most recent battle involves the selection of the chairman of the Republican Study Committee. Jeb Hensarling of Texas and Todd Tiahrt are vying for the position.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee is mentioned as among those siding with the conservatives.
