The Hill reports:

House members cast a second round of ballots for Speaker on Wednesday, but House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) fared no better, in fact losing support from the first vote on Tuesday.

The final Speaker vote was 199 for Jordan, 212 for House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries and 22 for someone else.

“A Speaker has not been elected,” Speaker Pro Tem Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) declared just before declaring the House in recess, subject to the call of the chair.

It is unclear when or if there will be another vote on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the push to expand the power of McHenry is heating up as the fractured GOP conference struggles to see a way forward.

“22 Rinos voted against Jim Jordan in Round 2, led by CCP-puppet Don Bacon. Some are calling for Jim to step aside. Do they forget Kevin McCarthy needed 15 rounds?” DC Draino commented.
