Jim Jordan failed to secure House Speaker in the third House Floor vote.

“Rep. Jim Jordan loses in third attempt at Speaker vote, despite meeting individually with dissenters,” investigative reporter Paul Sperry commented.

USA Today reports:

Jordan lost the third speaker vote, failing to garner enough support behind him and only losing more support among House Republicans.

Like with the second ballot, his detractors only grew in numbers − this time to 25 − making Jordan’s path to the speakership more uncertain.

It is unclear if a fourth vote will be held and whether lawmakers will stay in session through the weekend.


Support for Jordan continued fading in the third House Floor vote.

25 Republicans voted against Jordan.

Here’s the list:

BREAKING: 25 Republicans voted against Jim Jordan for Speaker on the latest ballot:


























Instead of a fourth House Floor vote, House Republicans ousted Jordan as the party’s Speaker nominee.

“Jim Jordan has officially LOST the GOP’s secret ballot held behind closed doors and will no longer be the nominee for Speaker. The House will take a break for the weekend and reconvene on Monday for a candidate forum,” journalist Nick Sortor said.

Newsmax also reported the latest developments:

Per Newsmax:

Republicans dropped Rep. Jim Jordan on Friday as their nominee for House speaker, making the decision during a closed-door session after the Donald Trump ally failed badly on a third ballot for the gavel.

The blocked-House impasse deepening, Republicans have no realistic or workable plan to unite the fractured GOP majority, elect a new speaker, and return to the work of Congress that has been languishing since hard-liners ousted Kevin McCarthy at the start of the month.

Majority Leader Steve Scalise said they’re going “come back and start over” on Monday.

Fox News added:

The House GOP conference on Friday voted to drop Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan as its speaker nominee after a third defeat in floor-wide votes earlier today.

Sources told Fox News Digital that the conference had voted to remove Jordan as the nominee in a closed-door meeting.

Jordan had even more Republicans vote against him in the third round of voting for the House speaker’s gavel on Friday.

25 Republicans voted against Jordan, giving him just 194 votes — far short of the approximately 217 he would need to win the speaker’s race. It’s his lowest total so far in the three ballots.

Jordan had previously indicated he was ready to push for votes through the weekend in an effort to secure the gavel.

“Our plan this weekend is to get a speaker elected to the House of Representatives soon as possible, so we can help the American people,” Jordan told reporters.

He called on Congress to “get to work” and cited the crisis in the Middle East as well as the looming government funding deadline on Nov. 17.
