Washington (CNN) — Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio has so far failed to clinch the House speakership in two rounds of voting.
On Tuesday, 20 Republicans voted against his candidacy – far more than the handful he could afford to lose given the party’s narrow majority in Congress.
Jordan – or any other GOP speaker candidate – can only afford to lose four Republican votes if all members are present and voting on the floor. A speaker needs a majority of the full House to be elected.
The congressman fared worse in a Wednesday vote, with 22 Republicans voting against him.
The House remains effectively frozen, as it has been without a speaker for two weeks after Kevin McCarthy’s historic ouster.
These are the House Republicans who voted against Jordan in each ballot:
1. Don Bacon of Nebraska voted for former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy
2. Lori Chavez-DeRemer of Oregon voted for McCarthy
3. Anthony D’Esposito of New York voted for former Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York
4. Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida voted for Steve Scalise of Louisiana
5. Jake Ellzey of Texas voted for Mike Garcia of California
6. Andrew Garbarino of New York voted for Zeldin
7. Carlos Gimenez of Florida voted for McCarthy
8. Tony Gonzales of Texas voted for Scalise
9. Kay Granger of Texas voted for Scalise
10. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania voted for Scalise
11. Jennifer Kiggans of Virginia voted for McCarthy
12. Nick LaLota of New York voted for Zeldin
13. Mike Lawler of New York voted for McCarthy
14. John Rutherford of Florida voted for Scalise
15. Mike Simpson of Idaho voted for Scalise
16. Steve Womack of Arkansas voted for Scalise
17. Ken Buck of Colorado voted for Tom Emmer of Minnesota
