After the sixth round of votes Wednesday night, McCarthy has remained to fail at successfully taking the speakership. After that sixth vote, the House did adjourn until 8 p.m. Wednesday night. Now House GOP members are scrambling to find another candidate to support. 50 Conservative heavyweights signed a statement calling for new leadership just before friends and foes of McCarthy met behind closed doors.
As of now, and until a Speaker is selected, House members cannot be sworn in and will continue to use the Representative-elect title. The Clerk of the House, who is currently presiding over the vote, will continue to head the House until a Speaker is selected.
The voting will continue until a majority is gained for one candidate. This could take days or even weeks depending on how the member-elects vote. Though this will for sure remain close as the votes continue to come in.
Though as of now it seems, until there is a better candidate nominated the deadlock may continue.
