    Sen. John Cornyn is the current minority whip, but I suspect the minority leader spot would be contested.

      Cornyn is the obvious choice, given he's (a) the Whip and (b) as a former NRSC head he has a good chunk of Republicans who owe him a debt and can be expected to vote for him. But Thune is #3 and is highly telegenic, so he might want it to.

      And it doesn't have to be from the current leadership. Someone else could easily throw their hat into the ring.
