The Republicans are getting ready for the 2018 midterm elections.
But there are some who are worried that the party will be unable to govern.
Here’s a look at who they might want to see in the White House: • House speaker Paul Ryan: Ryan, an early GOP favorite, has already been in Washington for four years and will have plenty of experience governing.
His conservative base is very loyal and the party can use him as a foil to President Donald Trump.
• Sen. Cory Gardner: The Colorado Republican has served in the House for six years and has been widely respected by the party for his leadership.
The 52-year-old is also one of the most popular lawmakers in the country and could serve as a firewall to the White St. Hill.
• Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo: The former congressman and former presidential candidate is a longtime friend of Ryan.
He’s also well-known as a tough-talking advocate of fiscal discipline and economic growth.
• New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie: Christie has been a vocal critic of Trump and Ryan.
Christie is one of Ryan’s strongest allies in Congress and is also the most outspoken in the party on immigration.
• Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: The Kentucky Republican has been very outspoken about his distaste for Trump.
He also has an established record of defending the Republican majority and opposing Democrats in Congress.
• House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.): The Republican House speaker has long held high praise for the president.
He is an outspoken conservative and has become one of Trump’s most trusted advisors.
• Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R, Texas): Hensaro is a veteran of the House who served as speaker for 10 years and a senior member of the Financial Services Committee.
He has previously criticized the president for not following through on his promises to fix the nation’s financial problems.
• Ohio Gov.
John Kasich: The governor has had a rocky relationship with Trump.
In addition to his criticism of Trump, Kasich also opposes the president’s proposed border wall.
Nikki Haley (R.S., S.C.): Haley has a reputation for being tough on the president but is considered to be a potential vice presidential pick if Trump falls out of favor.
The governor also is a friend of Trump.
