This was despite the fact that President Trump endorsed Kevin McCarthy again on Wednesday morning and urged Republicans to vote for him.

President Trump’s endorsement did not help Kevin McCarthy.

On Thursday morning, the House voted 4 times and McCarthy lost all 4 votes.

Rep. Matt Gaetz voted for Donald Trump in the 7th vote. Then later he nominated and voted for Trump in the 11th vote.

The House adjourned after the 11th failed vote.

Every single conservative who voted against McCarthy in the first 3 rounds voted against him in the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th rounds.
