Jockeying begins for GOP House leadership
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Calling the midterm election results a 'rebuke on the way Washington has conducted itself,' Rep. John Shadegg, R-Arizona, announced his intention Wednesday to seek the Minority Whip position in the next congressional term.

"Now is the time to return to the ideals that swept us into a governing majority." Shadegg said in a statement. "I have no doubt we can reclaim our rightful place as the governing party of reform and individual empowerment, but we must begin with a renewed vision for this Conference now."

Shadegg was unsuccessful in his bid for House Majority leader last winter, finishing third behind Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri.
