The House of Representatives plans to reconvene for a third day to decide who will serve as the next speaker, after House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy failed yet again on Wednesday to win enough votes. It is the first time in a century the process has taken so long.

The House will reconvene at noon, when members could vote for a seventh time. The chaos over two days in the GOP-led House could signal a bumpy road ahead for the new 118th Congress.

McCarthy has failed to meet the threshold needed to become speaker for a total of six ballots.
