Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) told The Hill that the conflict that hung over the first year of the House GOP’s majority has all but evaporated.

Asked if the tension seems to be gone, Conaway responded, “It is … not only does it seem [to be], it is.”

Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) said, “I think that they’ve worked together as Speaker and leader now, in a way that they hadn’t before. And I think you learn how to work with one another a little better over time.”

He added that President Obama’s actions during this election year have also helped. “Nothing unifies Republicans like the president.”
