Joni Ernst - in the No. 5 spot.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy secured the endorsement of House Speaker Paul Ryan earlier this year to lead the Republicans in the House.

At the helm of the House, Democrats are expected to launch numerous investigations of Trump, his business interests and his family, while also challenging his agenda.

Nancy Pelosi continues to fend off a rebellion in her ranks, working to win the support of enough House Democrats to clinch the votes needed to become Speaker of the House.

"Voting against her on the floor is a vote for Trump and (House Republican Leader Kevin) McCarthy, and that's not what they told voters". John Barrasso of Wyoming and Sen. Republicans have a 51-47 advantage in the chamber, with races in Florida and MS unresolved.

That means Pelosi can only lose somewhere between 11 and 19 votes, depending on how the final races are called, and still win back the speaker's gavel.
