McCarthy confronts Gaetz on House floor during chaotic 14th round of voting for speaker
After Rep. Matt Gaetz voted “present” in the 14th ballot for House speaker, Rep. Kevin McCarthy went over to talk to the Florida congressman.
Gaetz pointed fingers at McCarthy and when McCarthy walked away, Rep. Mike Rogers lunged at Gaetz.
If Gaetz doesn’t flip his vote to yes, McCarthy cannot win speakership, based on the tally so far in the voting.
Two sources tell CNN that Gaetz wants to adjourn chamber until Monday.
