The voting is today for the new Speaker of the House. With the GQP majority, Kevin McCarthy is begging hard for the votes.
As a troll, the Dems put up Hakeem Jeffries, who so far has garnered the most votes in each vote, but not enough to get the job as a simply majority is required (which he will doubtless not get).
Andy Biggs: 10
Gym Jordan: 6
Jim Banks, former Rep. Lee Zeldin, and Rep. Byron Donalds: 1 each
Gym Jordan: 19
The circus is quite popcorn-worthy I’m told. The GQP is in seeming disarray as the horse-trading is getting McCarthy nowhere.
And without a Speaker, the House is unable to operate.
