Acting Speaker Patrick McHenry declared a recess after the first round of voting.

On Tuesday afternoon Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (FL) requested the House immediately come back from recess for a second vote on Speaker.

Rep. Granger immediately backed Diaz-Balart and pushed for a vote ASAP.

Chairman Jordan said he is willing to go through as many votes as it takes to get a Speaker.

“We gotta have a Speaker, and it can’t be some deal with the Democrats,” Jordan told reporters.

The House adjourned Tuesday afternoon. The next vote for Speaker will be on Wednesday morning at 11 am ET.
