4 ballots against him and McCarthy has given up for the night.

LOL!! 🙂

He can't possibly bend over and spread 'em any farther to give up any more to the 19-20 of those on the far right of his "party" who oppose him.

So, an alternative candidate is they only way forward unless McCarthy can cut a deal and give up concessions to the Dems to gain the roughly 15 votes that he still needs to become SOTH.

@susgeek

I don't see how Amash would be any "better" for the Dems (can't believe he truly be "impartial" as a prior Tea Party candidate) but, it's an option for the GOP if they can't agree get McCarthy or a compromise candidate for the SOTH elected.
