The House is set to vote for a new Speaker Tuesday, according to House Democratic Whip Katherine Clark (D-Mass.).
The House has been without a speaker since Oct. 3, after Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) led a successful effort to oust Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) from the position on a 216-210 vote.
Every Democrat in the House joined eight Republicans in voting to remove McCarthy.
Since McCarthy’s ouster, House Republicans have been struggling to find his replacement. Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Rep. Jim Jordan both sought the position.
Scalise defeated Jordan among Republicans in a closed door internal party vote last week 113 to 99. But one day later Scalise dropped out of the race because he failed to sway enough of the holdouts to reach 217 votes to secure the nomination on the House floor.
On Friday, Jordan defeated Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) among Republicans, 124-80 to secure the Republican party nomination for House Speaker. On a second ballot to gauge the conference’s support for Jordan as their official nominee, he received 152 votes while 55 Republicans opposed his bid.
Though Jordan’s bid for the speakership appears to be gaining momentum heading into the House Speaker vote on Tuesday, it is still unclear whether he has enough votes to get to 217.
Democrats have nominated Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) for House speaker.
