The stalemate over electing a speaker of the House continues, with GOP leader Kevin McCarthy losing again in a fourth round of voting. He has now been nominated for a fifth time.
McCarthy failed to garner enough votes to win the House speakership Tuesday after three rounds of voting.
A nominee needs 218 votes, but the number required could change if members withhold their votes. The House can't kick off the new Congress or swear in new members until a speaker is elected.
