It particularly galled them that Mr. Scalise, the No. 2 Republican, defeated Mr. Jordan, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, in the initial party vote to choose a replacement for Mr. McCarthy only to then watch Mr. Jordan’s allies immediately pivot to denying Mr. Scalise the speakership on the floor.
This is your regular reminder that Republicans don’t want a functioning government. Government shutdowns and inability to legislate are a success state for them. I wish the media would make that more clear.
