Here are the 20 GOP lawmakers who voted against McCarthy for Speaker

Twenty House Republicans voted against Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for Speaker during the third ballot on Tuesday, denying the GOP nominee the gavel and forcing members to hold another vote for the top spot.

Nineteen had voted against McCarthy on the first two ballots.

The votes against McCarthy on the first ballot went to Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) — who was nominated for Speaker on the floor — in addition to Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Jim Banks (R-Ind.) and Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) and former Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who became an ex-member on Tuesday, when the 117th Congress officially came to an end.

By the second ballot, all of McCarthy’s opponents had coalesced around Jordan.

McCarthy received 202 votes on the third ballot, and the Democratic nominee, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), won 212, both short of the majority needed to win the Speakership.

Here’s a list of McCarthy’s GOP detractors:

Rep. Andy Biggs (Ariz.)
