As new House Republicans meet to divide the spoils of their victory over the Democrats and elect leaders to run the House of Representatives the next two years, some divisions between the old guard and those representing the new Tea Party wing have emerged.
It appears that John Boehner of Ohio is set as Speaker, and Eric Cantor of Virginia seems to be a lock for Majority Leader. But a battle is brewing between Tea Party favorite Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota and Jeb Hensarling of Texas, who both want the job of Caucus Chair.
The old guard of the GOP — while happy with the victories that gave it a majority — is not content to let the Tea Party waltz in and take over. So it’s going to be difficult sledding for Tea Party-backed candidates to obtain leadership positions.
If that’s the case, they need to turn to the example set by Samuel Adams during the first Continental Congress.
