 HAPPENING NOW: McCarthy Caves, Gives In to Every Demand Made by GOP Detractors: Report

GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy has reportedly caved and has given in to all demands made by the high-profile GOP detractors.

The US House voted for Speaker for the 6th time Wednesday afternoon.

McCarthy lost the 6th vote.

20 GOP lawmakers defected and refused to vote for McCarthy.

This was the first time in 100 years that Speakership was not decided in the first vote.

McCarthy reportedly huddled with his detractors in a closed-door meeting, according to Punchbowl News.

According to Politico reporter Olivia Beavers: “McCarthy’s team laid out a compromise that would give in to nearly every demand expressed by the current defectors. Plan discusses everything from rules committee seats to house floor vote guarantees, a source familiar tells me.”

Although the compromise was taken favorably, it is unclear if McCarthy has the votes to get across the finish line.
