Congress back to square 1 on electing speaker

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Republicans are back to square one. It’s a game of congressional snakes and ladders, where every space on the board is a serpent.

More than two weeks after a handful of House conservatives ousted Kevin McCarthy from the speaker’s chair, the party is still looking for a someone who can successfully reach the top of the board.

No one yet has even come close.

Jim Jordan is only the latest, most determined casualty of a leadership drama that at every turn seems to get more chaotic and acrimonious.

House Republicans now head home for the weekend to lick their wounds. A grab-bag of politicians have already either declared their bids for the speakership or are seriously considering them.
