Who will succeed Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., as speaker of the House, after he became the first person in American history to be booted from the office? It’s not even clear to Republicans, who will vote on the matter Wednesday morning. Two firmly conservative candidates, Steve Scalise of Louisiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio, are vying for the position. Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has former President Donald Trump’s endorsement, while Scalise, the majority leader, has more leadership experience and a wide array of influential supporters in the House. The vote comes as the government weighs what to do next with Ukraine aid and the growing crisis in Israel and the Gaza Strip, as well as a new shutdown deadline next month. McCarthy, for his part, asked members not to re-nominate him for speaker.
Today the Federal Reserve will release the minutes from its latest policy-setting meeting.
Israeli troops are gathering at the border with the Gaza Strip, a government official said, as the nation’s military prepares for a potential invasion of the Palestinian territory. “And that is to make sure that Hamas, at the end of this war, won’t have military capabilities by which they can threaten or kill Israeli civilians. That is our military aim,” said an Israeli Defense Forces spokesman. Israel has called up 300,000 reservists as it responds to a shocking and brutal sneak attack by Hamas terrorists who killed slaughtered hundreds of civilians and took dozens hostage.
