Byron Donalds Changes Vote Back to McCarthy -- WSJ
By Natalie Andrews
Byron Donalds, who voted for Mr. McCarthy in the first two ballots and then shifted away from him and was even nominated for speaker himself, voted for Mr. McCarthy on Friday.
Mr. Donalds has been an active part of negotiating a deal between Mr. McCarthy's backers and his detractors, going in and out of a first-floor room all day on Thursday.
This is the fifth person in this ballot who has switched their vote in Mr. McCarthy's favor.
