    House Republicans are moving closer to what several call “Plan B” when selecting a Speaker after a vote for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) failed twice.

    According to reports, it seems increasingly likely that the GOP Caucus will formally elect Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina speaker pro tempore. Right now, as acting Speaker, he lacks the authority to move legislation through the chamber, Politico noted.

    McHenry presided over the Speaker vote on Tuesday, where House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) received more votes than Jordan, 212-200, though 217 is needed to take the gavel.
