(Worthy News) – In a once-in-century political stalemate, the House rejected Rep. Kevin McCarthy for Speaker over six consecutive votes, prompting frustrated Republicans to break into negotiating teams Wednesday night to find a potential resolution.

Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., confirmed to Just the News that the party’s competing wings have entered negotiations to reach a compromise on choosing the next Speaker of the House. Twenty GOP lawmakers have consistently opposed McCarthy’s nomination, thwarting him from reaching the required total.

McCarthy, the party’s lead contender for the post, has failed six times thus far to secure the support of a majority of lawmakers. The House voted three times on Wednesday and no candidate received the necessary 218 votes. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
