Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, is calling for unity among House Republicans just hours after a number of party members tanked the chamber’s first vote on a new speaker.

“We must stop attacking each other and come together. There’s too much at stake. Let’s get back to working on the crisis at the southern border, inflation, and helping Israel,” Jordan wrote in a post on X.

Jordan won the support of 200 Republicans in Tuesday’s sole vote while 20 split their support between a number of others. All 212 Democrats voted for Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.

217 voters
