McCarthy loses sixth vote for Speaker of the House

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Capitol Hill remained at a standstill halfway through Wednesday, Jan. 4 as the sixth vote for Speaker of teh House failed to assign the position..

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy failed to secure the necessary 218 votes due to roughly 20 “Never-Kevin” Republicans who refused to vote for him.

The House cannot swear in new members until a Speaker is elected.

KUSI’s Rafer Weigel was joined by AM 600 KOGO Radio Host Mark Larson to discuss how this standstill might affect 2023.
