Ongoing humiliation. House adjourns with no speaker elected #politics #news #headlines #latestnews #breakingnews


WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 03: (L-R) U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik (D-NY), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) talk as the House of Representatives holds their vote for Speaker of the House on the first day of the 118th Congress in the House Chamber of the U.S. Capitol Building on January 03, 2023 in Washington, DC. Today members of the 118th Congress will be sworn-in and the House of Representatives will elect a new Speaker of the House. (Photo by Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images)

The vote for House Speaker continues, moving to round three in with Kevin McCarthy’s hapless bid to lead the tiny minority in the new Congress. This is the first time in 100 years that the Speaker was not elected on the first ballot, something that’s only happened 14 times in history.

Stick with us for as long as this goes, and watch all the fun on C-SPAN. We could be here for days.
