What happens now? There’s a possibility of speaker votes on Monday evening, but that assumes Jordan can actually overcome a big deficit over the weekend. He’s such a divisive figure, even within his own conference, it’s hard to imagine he can do it. He need to come in strong this morning and steamroll his way through. That—thankfullly—did not work.
I suspect there will be a lot of Republicans who won’t have their phones with them this weekend, trying to stay out of his and his team’s reach.
