SPEAKER SPAT: Jordan Fails to Hit 217 Again —Here are the Holdouts Putting the U.S. in Jeopardy!

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.18.23

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) failed to reach the magic number of 217 votes to grab the gavel in the House’s second round of voting for a new Speaker since McCarthy’s ouster.

From Fox News:

On Wednesday, 22 Republicans voted against Jordan, who was nominated by the GOP conference last week. He could lose only four votes.

Four Republicans who voted for Jordan yesterday voted for someone else today: Reps Buchanan, R-Fla., Ferguson, R-Ga., Miller Meeks, R-Iowa, and Stauber, R-Minn.

Jordan flipped 1 Republican to his column — Rep LaMalfa, R-Calif.

Other Republicans voted for lawmakers including former Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Majority Leader Steve Scalise, former Speaker John Boehner and former Rep. Lee Zeldin.

Jordan came 17 votes short of the 217 votes needed to win the gavel on Tuesday in the first round of voting after 20 GOP lawmakers voted against him. All Democrats voted for Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries.

We encourage you to call your representative’s office —politely, of course —and encourage these GOP holdouts to throw their support behind Jordan and get the country moving again:
