Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan has called off the third speaker vote for now and plans to back Patrick McHenry of North Carolina as the temporary speaker of the House of Representatives, the Daily Signal has learned.
A source familiar with the congressman’s plans told The Daily Signal that Jordan will not be dropping out, that he “will continue to run and try to shore up votes until January,” and that he “remains speaker designee.”
The House has twice voted now on Jordan for speaker. Both votes failed.
