Kevin McCarthyRepublican lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives have elected an eight-year California congressman as their new majority leader.

Congressman Kevin McCarthy won the internal party election Thursday. As majority leader, the 49-year-old McCarthy becomes the No. 2 Republican in the Republican-controlled House, behind House Speaker John Boehner.

After McCarthy's election, Republicans chose Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise to replace him as majority whip. The whip is the No. 3 Republican leader in the House of Representatives and helps round up votes for key legislation supported by party leaders.
