The House is scheduled to begin the effort for the installation of California Representative Kevin McCarthy at 10:00pm ET. It is unknown whether the 14th ballot effort will succeed or exactly how many representatives are still in DC for the activity. The livestream is below:
- Round 14 fails for McCarthy by one vote. 232 votes cast. McCarthy got 216 – one vote short of majority.
- Representative Mike Rogers (AL) tried to fight Matt Gaetz and had to be restrained. (LINK)
- GOP tried to adjourn. Voice vote failed and failed counting of yeas and nays. House cannot adjourn.
- Republicans now go for round #15
