Will House Conservatives Make their Mark on History?

To win the contest for the House GOP Conference nomination for Speaker, a candidate must first win at least 218 votes in the special House GOP Conference meeting to be held on October 8. No candidate who wins fewer than 218 votes can win the nomination; 218 is the minimum number of votes necessary to win the contest for Speaker ...
