How Temporary House speaker

After two weeks of Disagreement and Disarray, The House Decide to empower acting speaker Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) to be temporary speaker.

McHenry was chosen by ex-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to serve as speaker pro tempore if he were ever ousted, which he was earlier this month in a House majority vote by eight Republicans and all Democrats.

It comes after Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, fell 17 votes short of the 217 he needed to win the speaker’s gavel on Tuesday 17 October 2023 .

Twenty Republicans voted for someone other than Jordan, a tally that caught allies who expected a closer finish by surprise .
