Blunt's Whip Endangered?

The Politico ponders if Roy Blunt's status as Minority Whip is endangered if Republicans get wiped out in the House this fall.

Reporter Patrick O'Connor wonders if Rep. Eric Cantor might challenge Blunt or Minority Leader John Boehner if Republicans lose more than 10 House seats.

"The chief deputy whip passed on a chance in 2006 to challenge Blunt. Ever since, Republicans have seen him as the next lawmaker to lead their party. The question: Would he challenge Blunt or go all the way by taking on Boehner?"
