HERE WE GO: US House Votes 7th Time for US House Speaker — KEVIN McCARTHY LOSES ONCE AGAIN!
On Tuesday, Trump endorsed Kevin McCarthy failed three times to win the vote for US Speaker of the House. It was the first time in 100 years that Speakership was not decided in the first vote.
Kevin McCarthy lost the third vote for House Speaker on Tuesday afternoon, with 20 Republicans voting for Rep. Jim Jordan.
The winning Republican can only afford to lose four votes! He must reach 218 votes to win the Speakership. And the GOP holds a narrow 222 to 212 majority in the chamber.
On Wednesday morning McCarthy lost a 4th time! Then a fifth time. And then in the afternoon Kevin McCarthy lost a sixth time.
This was despite the fact that President Trump endorsed Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday morning and urged Republicans to vote for McCarthy.
The actions of these principled conservatives who refuse to support Kevin McCarthy is infuriating to party insiders, the Uniparty, lobbyists, and GOP elites.
HERE WE GO– The 7th Vote Has Started…….
Here are the 20 hold-out Republicans to watch this morning.
Rep. Cloud was the 5th vote against McCarthy.
McCarthy lost for the seventh time.
The writing is on the wall.
