DEVELOPING STORY: Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has been removed from the race to be the next House Speaker, giving RINO’s a huge victory.
Jim Jordan lost a secret ballot vote of the House GOP behind closed doors, sources tell CNN.
Rep. Barry Moore told CNN that members were taking a “yes” or “no” vote in their conference meeting on whether to keep Jordan as their nominee for speaker.
“Jim Jordan is out of the race. We’re supposed to come back for a candidate forum on Monday at 6:30,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told reporters.
The latest move came after Jordan lost on a third ballot earlier today.
25 Republicans voted against Jordan, giving him just 194 votes — far short of the approximately 217 he would need to win the speaker’s race. It’s his lowest total so far in the three ballots.
This is absolutely shameful. Meanwhile, furious Republican voters are staging protest rallies outside congressional offices across the country.
House Majority Leader Steve Scalise said the House is leaving until Monday when they will “start over.”
The House has been without a Speaker for 17 days and counting.
Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy told CNN “unfortunately Jim is no longer going to be the nominee” after the conference’s vote to remove Jim Jordan as their Speaker designee.
“We’ll have to go back to the drawing board. What history will look at the crazy eights led by Gaetz, the amount of damage they’ve done to this party, this country, is insurmountable. I’ve never seen this amount of damage done with just a few people for their own personalities,” McCarthy told CNN.
