House moves to 15th speaker ballot after McCarthy falls one vote short in 14th


A 15th round of voting for speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives looked set to start late Friday, after the chamber failed to select a speaker in its 14th vote. With 432 House lawmakers voting in a 14th ballot, top House Republican Kevin McCarthy got 216 votes, or one vote short of a majority, so a 15th ballot will be needed to select a speaker.
