1. Is Kevin McCarthy On The Brink? NPR 26:46

The California Republican was able to win over some of his detractors today as balloting for the Speaker of the House entered a fourth day. However, neither he — nor any other candidate — has won enough votes to take the position, leaving the House in continued limbo.

This episode: political correspondent Susan Davis, congressional correspondent Deirdre Walsh, White House correspondent Franco Ordoñez, and senior political editor & correspondent Domenico Montanaro.

In the event a speaker is elected late Friday or overnight Saturday, we plan to be in your feeds Saturday morning with the latest.

This episode was produced by Elena Moore and Casey Morell. It was edited by Casey Morell. Our executive producer is Muthoni Muturi. Research and fact-checking by Katherine Swartz. Thanks to Lexie Schapitl.
