It's Cornyn vs. Ensign

It's Cornyn vs. Ensign: "Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) has begun campaigning to be the next vice chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, opening the only fight for a Republican leadership post.

He has decided to challenge Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), who announced his decision to seek the post after deciding not to run against Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas). Hutchison is running for chairmanship of the Republican Policy Committee, the party’s fourth ranking post.

Whoever wins the race would begin serving after the 2006 elections.

Cornyn and Ensign are well-liked and respected by their Republican colleagues, who cast secret ballots in leadership elections. Both are conservative on social and economic issues."
