Probably. But one of the names floated in the Washpo story attached is Rick Santorum. Rick Santorum. Ole’ Rick is no conservative and he would be even worse news than Paul Ryan.
Ryan is too protective of the establishment. He is too dismissive of the actual small government people in the House of Representatives. Really, he’s followed Boehner’s tired path.

The closed-door conversations are being led by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, in consultation with his allies on the right, in particular Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist who recently returned to his perch as executive chairman of the Breitbart News website. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and other Freedom Caucus members are also involved in the talks to varying degrees, according to nearly a dozen people with knowledge of the discussions.
On Wednesday, Meadows, Jordan and Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) took their concerns directly to Ryan, telling him in a private meeting in the Capitol that his failure to enact conservative priorities could diminish his support among conservatives.
