WATCH LIVE McCarthy fails in marathon votes for US House speaker, not giving up | DW News


Republican leader Kevin McCarthy failed in marathon voting Tuesday to become House speaker, a historic defeat with no clear way out as House Republicans dug in for a long, messy start for the new Congress.

Needing 218 votes in the full House, McCarthy got just 203 in two rounds, less even than Democrat Hakeem Jeffries in the GOP-controlled chamber.
