Speaker Of House Vote Goes To Second Round


California GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy failed to secure the necessary votes to become speaker of the House in a first round of voting after 19 House Republicans voted against him.


Previous speakers have faced defections in the first vote of the session to install the top leader, but it’s the first time in 100 years a speaker needed multiple ballots to win.


Concessions didn’t cinch the vote on first round.


Speaking to reporters on Tuesday morning, Perry said he and other members planning to vote against McCarthy took a plan to him Monday night, outlining what he needed to do to win their support, and thus 218 votes to win.


McCarthy ran for speaker in 2015 when then House Speaker John Boehner stepped down, but withdrew abruptly from the race after conceding he didn’t have the votes to win.


The public vote on the House floor showcased the GOP divisions and chaos.


Ahead of the vote, McCarthy’s allies insisted they won’t vote for any alternative candidate, and even if it’s messy, they will stick with him.
