Though there's some sense that the Majority Leader, who is well-liked by Trump, is the favorite, Scalise would reportedly leap at an opening if he senses McCarthy won't be able to drum up the necessary votes.
Ryan said he was "encouraged" when Scalise said Thursday morning that McCarthy ought to be the person to replace the speaker. Members of the highly conservative House Freedom Caucus were threatening to withhold their support unless McCarthy, who is considered more a part of the Republican establishment, embraced their pick for a new majority leader and made other concessions.

Whether the party was united or not, Ryan's announcement could not have been more ill-timed, coming just months before a contentious midterm election that may wipe out the Republican majority in the House.
A handful of caucus-leading kingmakers are expected to weigh in on these races, especially Representative Mark Meadows of North Carolina, who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, a group of about three-dozen members. Freedom Caucus members have lambasted its passage. "We need to make sure [Republicans] hold the House", he said.
"It's obviously in our interest to keeping our majority, that every player is on the field fighting for this majority", Ryan said.
"The strength he's shown with his injury, I think, has heightened where he is" among colleagues, said Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn.
