House speaker vote live updates: Trump says voting for Emmer ‘would be a tragic mistake’ – By Alexandra Hutzler, John Parkinson , and Lauren Peller – After three weeks without a speaker, House Republicans have another nominee for the top spot — the third this month.

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer won the nomination for speaker in the fifth round of voting in a secret ballot Tuesday. While he clinched the nomination, he still lacks the GOP votes needed to win on the floor.

The chaotic battle for the gavel has dragged on after House Majority Leader Steve Scalise was nominated, but backed out when it became clear he didn’t have the votes. Last week, the conference dropped Rep. Jim Jordan as their nominee after his speakership bid failed for a third time on the House floor.
