Maryland congressman Andy Harris sticks with anti-McCarthy voters in second day of US House speaker struggle

January 5, 2023

Rep. Andy Harris, Maryland’s only Republican U.S. House member, voted again Wednesday with a bloc intent on denying the body’s speakership to Kevin McCarthy of California. Harris voted three times Wednesday for Rep. Byron Donalds, a Florida Republican who got 20 votes compared with 201 for McCarthy in the final tally before the House adjourned until 8 p.m. McCarthy was well shy of the necessary majority of the 433 votes cast. Harris’ spokeswoman, Anna Adamian, did not return messages seeking comment.
