In the Midterm Elections, the Republicans managed to gain a majority in the House of Representatives and will therefore get to choose the new Speaker of the House, taking over after Democrat Nancy Pelosi. You would think that they would take this opportunity to get a memeber of their party into this role, as the Speaker of the House is third in line in power in the USA, after the President and the Vice President. But no, seems like they can’t agree…. 20 Republican representatives have now voted against the Republican candidate Kevin McCarthy. You would also think that the Republicans who voted against him would then maybe think he is too right-leaning (Trump supporter) and therefore decided to go with the Democrats instead. But no, these are the real hardliners in the Republican party, and they don’t think McCarthy is conservative enough. The House wil vote on this again, so follow the vote and see what happens:)
