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.
