Rep. Boebert Votes 'Present'
By Eliza Collins
GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, who had been a vocal opponent of Rep. Kevin McCarthy's bid for speaker, voted "present" during the 14th ballot.
Voting present allows the number of votes Mr. McCarthy needs to win to be brought down.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R., Ariz.) another McCarthy detractor voted again for GOP Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio.
