Jim Jordan just did worse on the first round of voting than Kevin McCarthy did in January: 200 votes compared to Hakeem Jeffries’ 212.
Jeffries has, by my count, now gotten the most votes to be Speaker in a dozen votes this year.
I’m mostly posting this as an open thread. But I have to say I was gleeful that minutes after I wished someone would interview Nancy Pelosi about how Republican boys can’t count, she said,
“I feel sad for the institution. I think it’s sad that they’re getting worse and worse.”
“They should take a lesson in mathematics and learn how to count.”
Update: Jordan has delayed a revote until tomorrow at 11.
