Just how quickly did Rep. Kevin McCarthy rise to the post of House majority leader? The California Republican’s ascent to the No. 2 House leadership post sets a new record.

Eric Cantor at the end of July, according to an analysis by the non-partisan Smart Politics blog at the University of Minnesota.
