The US House of Representatives is showing no sign of breaking a stalemate in voting to determine the next speaker of the House.
- The same three nominees are on the ballot: Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) - Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) - Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL).
- Donalds was nominated by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) who said on the floor: "[President Trump] needs to tell Kevin McCarthy that 'Sir, you do not have the votes and that it's time to withdraw.'"
