Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) failed to secure the 217 votes needed to be the next Speaker of the House in the second round of votes Monday.
He lost the first round after 19 Republicans defected, and now a third round is expected.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) nominated McCarthy for the second round, and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-OH) nominated Jordan.
This is the first time in 100 years that a speaker was not secured in the first round of votes.
