The 118th Congress met for the first time Tuesday starting their new session. Though things did not go as planned for the 435 voting members of the House. The House’s first action was to vote amongst themselves and select a Speaker. After a historic 15 votes for Speaker – which has not been in seen in over one hundred years – that Speaker was elected. After much opposition and four days of votes, Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy was finally elected as the Speaker of the House of the United States House of Representatives.
