Gaetz will vote McCarthy and hand him the single vote win

Gaetz said on Fox there is nothing else McCarthy can offer, he already gave it all away, and Gaetz called him Speaker-designate.

So Gaetz flipped. And he's the only vote McCarthy needs.

Certain Senate Democrats opposed legislation that would have put an end to republicon vote cheating and stealing.

He still may change his vote, but he's enjoying the camera time.

Edit. Vote closed. Gaets is the shithead of the day. A position that he wears well.

"No vote yet".
They're past the Gs.
I hope Kevin fails but it does look like Matt is setting it up for drama.

McCarthy under any circumstances. He voted present and I think that will be as much as he will do.

Per the New York Times, the tally is 216 McCarthy, 212 Jeffries, 6 (including Gaetz) voting present. In short, Gate's vote for McCarthy (or even his voting for someone and not voting "present&quot wasn't necessary.
