U.S. Representative Darrell Issa, a California Republican, on Friday said he is considering running for U.S. House speaker after the conservative party's leading candidate abruptly quit the race on Thursday.

"I am considering whether or not to put my name in the hat," Issa said in an interview on CNBC.

"Starting this morning, we're looking for a consensus candidate," he said, added that if no such candidate emerges House Republicans should consider rebuilding their entire leadership slate.
