House Republicans Vote to Drop Jim Jordan as Speaker Nominee

The vote was tallied by secret ballot

House Republicans, meeting behind closed doors, voted Friday by secret ballot for Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) to step aside as the GOP speaker nominee after a third vote on the House floor in which Jordan fell well short of a majority of the full chamber.

The vote to remove Jordan was 112 to 86. The move leaves the Republican conference without a nominee more than two weeks after the ouster of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) as speaker.

House Republicans will return Monday to start the process again. Members have until Sunday to declare speaker candidacies.
