US Rep. Andy Harris says he’ll endorse Jim Jordan for speaker of the House

October 9, 2023

U.S. Rep. Andy Harris said on social media Friday that he’d support House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio, a Republican, to be the next speaker of the House. Former Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy was ousted from the role Wednesday, after 216 representatives — eight Republicans and 208 Democrats — voted to remove him, The Baltimore Sun reported. Harris, Maryland’s only Republican in Congress, voted to keep McCarthy in the role. He did not publicly explain his decision.
