The leading contender to become speaker of the Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives unexpectedly dropped out of the race Thursday.  California congressman Kevin McCarthy had been seeking to replace House Speaker John Boehner ahead of Boehner's retirement at the end of October.
"We should put this conference first.  And I think there is something to be said for us to unite. We probably need a fresh face."  
McCarthy's path to the speakers office was made more difficult when two other Congressmen--Jason Chaffetz of Utah and Daniel Webster of Florida--announced their candidacies.
