On Wednesday afternoon, the House reconvened to conduct a fourth, fifth, and sixth round of votes for the speaker position after Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) failed three times yesterday to gather enough votes. As a result, Tuesday marked the first time in a century that the House speaker bid went to a multiple-ballot vote.

After hours of negotiations Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, McCarthy again failed to secure the House speaker position before the House adjourned at approximately 4:30 p.m. EST. The House will reconvene Wednesday at 8 p.m. for a seventh vote.
