Gregg Harper Exits Leadership Race, Could Be in Line for House Administration Gavel

Rep. Gregg Harper has dropped his bid to become Republican Conference secretary, narrowing the only three-way GOP leadership race to two candidates.
The Mississippi lawmaker sought a spot at the elected leadership table by touting his willingness to take on unenviable tasks for Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, especially a post on the Ethics Committee.
The same argument could just as easily be applied to another position for which Harper might be a candidate. His decision to step out of the leadership race is touching off speculation that he will seek the gavel of the House Administration Committee, where he is now the second-ranking Republican and chairman of a subcommittee.
