House Republican Whip, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), leaves a meeting of the House Republican conference June 18, 2014 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC.

The winner will replace Eric Cantor of Virginia, who suffered a stunning primary defeat last week at the hands of a Tea Party candidate. By all accounts, Congressman Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield has the job sewn up. What might this mean for the issues California cares about? Like water, immigration reform, patent reform and high speed rail? Reporter: Scott Shafer
