The congressman also addressed speculation he might be interested in challenging Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards next year.

"I love my job as majority whip," Scalise said. "I 've been able to get to a position where I can actually have even more influence for my state, and we've been able to show that on things like coastal restoration, on dredging of the Mississippi River, so many other issues where we've been about to get Louisiana's position enhanced."

Scalise also said that Louisiana hasn't had a member of the House in this influential a position since Hale Boggs held the same post more than 45 years ago.
