Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Huber and Beckstein refuse to resign. But there are open demands in the CDU for the resignation of the party secretary (Christine Haderthauer), and Huber seems under serious threat.

This is interesting: the end result may be that Huber will be succeeded by the man he defeated in the recent leadership election, the federal agrarian minister Horst Seehofer. That would mean the replacement of an economic liberal with the most prominent representative of the party's social wing.
