Kevin McCarthy’s House speaker job under threat, with vote possible today: live updates



House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is at risk of losing his job as early as Tuesday, as a faction of hard-right Republicans seeks to oust him and Democrats signaled they are not willing to vote to save him. Earlier Tuesday, McCarthy told GOP lawmakers he would make a motion to table a resolution to remove him as speaker. But to survive, McCarthy would need Democratic support, and leading members of the party said Tuesday that they feel no obligation to provide votes. “We are ready, willing and able to work together with our Republican colleagues, but it is on them to join us,” House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) told reporters after an hours-long Democratic caucus meeting.
