It would start at 1:00 PM ET. I’ll cover it live in this post if it does happen.
We will not have a third vote for a House Speaker today.
Nominee Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan needs 217 Republican votes if all members are present. He could only lose four votes.
Jordan lost 20 votes in the first round and 22 votes in the second round.
Democrats won’t cross the aisle and vote for a Republican.
Centrist Democrats have come forward to support giving McHenry more power to tackle issues the government needs to address.
Jordan supports giving McHenry temporary extended powers until January 3, 2024.

The House cannot function without a Speaker. The government is at a standstill without the House.
It’s amazing to witness how hard the Founders made it for the government to function. Pick apart the Constitution and you’ll find more. The Founders did this on purpose because they did not want a strong and overreaching central government.
If the House holds the vote I will cover it live in this post. It has only held one vote a day. The House did 15 rounds in a row in January before it elected Rep. Kevin McCarthy.DONATE
