Big shock for Kevin McCarthy.

Republican Kevin McCarthy failed in the first attempt to be elected chairman of the US House of Representatives. McCarthy missed the required majority for the powerful office in the United States in the vote in the inaugural session of the House of Representatives on Tuesday. It is the first time in a hundred years that more than one run-up has been required for the election.

After the parliamentary elections in November, the Congress met for the first time on Tuesday in a new constellation. The Republicans took control of the House of Representatives – in the Senate, President Joe Biden’s Democrats still have a narrow majority. The start of the new legislative period was overshadowed by the Republicans’ bitter internal struggle for leadership in the House of Representatives.
