Kevin McCarthy Voted Out of U.S. House Speakership Role
Late in the afternoon on Tuesday, October 3, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to remove Rep. Kevin McCarthy from his role as the Speaker of the House.
A small contingent of Republican members of the House, unhappy with the Speaker’s performance, were able to assemble eight of their party to vote for his removal.
This number, combined with the 208 Democratic members voting for removal, prevented McCarthy from keeping his position.
The final vote was 216 in favor of removal vs. 210 opposed.
While there is no current presumptive candidate, the House is expected to accept nominations and take a vote to fill his seat later today.
