LIVE FEED: Coverage Continues of the House Speaker Vote – Kevin McCarthy Goes for His 7th STRAIGHT LOSS (VIDEO)

On Tuesday, Trump endorsed Kevin McCarthy failed three times to win the vote for US Speaker of the House. It was the first time in 100 years that Speakership was not decided in the first vote.

Kevin McCarthy lost the third vote for House Speaker on Tuesday afternoon, with 20 Republicans voting for Rep. Jim Jordan.

The winning Republican can only afford to lose four votes! He must reach 218 votes to win the Speakership. And the GOP holds a narrow 222 to 212 majority in the chamber.

On Wednesday morning McCarthy lost a 4th time!  Then a fifth time.  And then in the afternoon Kevin McCarthy lost a sixth time.

This was despite the fact that President Trump endorsed Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday morning and urged Republicans to vote for McCarthy.

The actions of these principled conservatives who refuse to support Kevin McCarthy is infuriating to party insiders, the Uniparty, lobbyists, and GOP elites.

On Wednesday, Dan Crenshaw called the 20 Republican holdouts “terrorists.”

On Thursday morning the FOX and Friends cast labeled the principled holdouts as “insurrectionists” and “saboteurs.”

The US House will reconvene on Thursday morning at noon.

They will continue their selection process for Speaker of the House.

Here is the livefeed.
