    Bettencourt was far, and away, the preferred on the first ballot.

    One of the other two dropped out. When those who supported the drop out did not line up behind the remaining candidate ... that third candidate also dropped out.

    Bettencourt was elected with unanimous consent of the caucus.  

    All Republicans in the House voted FOR Bettencourt.

    And, while I do not know this for certain ... I believe Mr. Bettencourt was Mr. O'Brien's preferred candidate
