dailysignal.com – By Philip Wegmann – The number of Freedom Caucus members considering an exodus from the Republican Study Committee has dwindled to just a handful of lawmakers, according to a comprehensive Daily Signal survey. That healthy prognosis comes little more than a month after Freedom Caucus members began talking openly of a breakup between the two influential conservative groups, and it could signal continued cooperation between them when the next Congress convenes.
The aftershock of a more significant breakup of the two groups threatened to shake up the conservative bloc in Congress. Though distinct, the Freedom Caucus and RSC share members, sometimes coordinate on policy fights, and make up the majority of the Republican conference.
But the threat of an exodus has greatly diminished.
