The House GOP conference has finished its secret ballot Wednesday.

While the vote has yet to be released, House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., is believed to be the winner.

The House Conference rejected a motion to require 217 Republican votes for a candidate before the ballot goes to the House floor.

Under GOP rules, the conference is now expected to support the winner of the secret ballot.
