MCCarthy.JPGRep. Kevin McCarthy is House Republicans' pick for the No. 3. leadership post in the House of Representatives.

The Bakersfield Republican was elected majority whip for the 112th Congress during today's Republican House leadership votes.

"It is truly an honor to have the opportunity to serve my colleagues as the Majority Whip. I believe that together we can usher in the era of America's comeback through hard work and a strong commitment to our conservative principles," he said in a press release.

As expected, House Republicans selected Ohio Rep. John Boehner to serve as house speaker.
