This was the first time in 100 years that Speakership was not decided in the first vote.

McCarthy reportedly huddled with his detractors in a closed-door meeting, according to Punchbowl News.

According to Politico reporter Olivia Beavers: “McCarthy’s team laid out a compromise that would give in to nearly every demand expressed by the current defectors. Plan discusses everything from rules committee seats to house floor vote guarantees, a source familiar tells me.”

Although the compromise was taken favorably, it is unclear if McCarthy has the votes to get across the finish line.
