According to the BBC website Gove is now under pressure to withdraw from the Conservative Party Leadership race. This would allow the Conservatives to unite behind Theresa May and short-cut the leadership select process.

BBC: Tory leadership: Ministers urging Gove to pull out

This is after his sudden and dramatic announcement yesterday that he was withdrawing his support from Boris Johnson and standing for the leadership role himself.

There have been a lot of reports of conspiracies and back-stabbing, but that's normal for politics. There have even been suggestions of a deal between Boris Johnson & Theresa May such that Boris cleared the way for Theresa if she would stand aside for him in 2020. I kinda doubt that one myself.
