Former US House of Representatives speaker Kevin McCarthy’s exit was not unprecedented as it took 15 separate ballot attempts to elect him, says University of California, Irvine professor [of political science and Chicano/Latino studies] Louis DeSipio. “He agreed to a process whereby any single member could challenge his maintaining the office. Today, somebody took him up on that – and the vote was narrow but it was enough to remove him from the office … I think it is going to be a free-for-all for the next week – and we’ll see who is able to unite much of that caucus.” says DeSipio.
