The House is now voting for a tenth time in the battle to select a House speaker.
Kevin McCarthy, despite having the support of the majority of Republicans, has routinely failed to reach the amount of votes needed to win the speakership. Hakeem Jeffries stands firm among the Democrats, providing a tough race between the candidates.
Jeffries recently made history when he became the first Black leader of a major political party.
