Republican California Rep. Kevin McCarthy failed to ascend to the speakership on the ninth straight ballot, with a gang of 21 holdouts forcing the House of Representatives to a 10th speaker ballot for the first time since 1859.

McCarthy received 200 votes, leaving him 17 short of the 217 necessary for him to become Speaker of the House. Republican Florida Rep. Byron Donalds drew 17 votes, while Republican Oklahoma Rep. Kevin Hern garnered three. All 212 Democrats supported incoming House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York.

Donalds voted for himself, while Hern is supporting McCarthy. Republican Indiana Rep. Victoria Spartz voted “present” for the sixth straight ballot. Colorado Rep. Ken Buck, who previously voted for McCarthy, did not cast a ballot. He reportedly left the Capitol to attend a doctor’s appointment.
