Update: McCarthy does not have the votes in round 5.
Original Story: Things are looking even worse for Kevin McCarthy on Day 2 of voting for Speaker of the House than they did on Day 1, which was abysmal for him. Not only did he fail to get enough votes to win the gavel, but he actually lost the vote of one of the Representatives who voted for him three times yesterday.
Congressman Chip Roy nominated Byron Donalds, making him the latest conservative choice. Like Jim Jordan yesterday, Donalds received 20 votes.
