McCarthy struggling to secure enough votes to become Speaker

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is struggling to secure enough votes to become the next speaker of the House. A group of at least nine Republicans have made it clear that they’re not sold on him leading the House GOP. Former Republican Congressman Will Hurd tells Anderson Cooper why he thinks the pushback McCarthy is facing is “a problem of leadership that goes back years.”

Plus, new details are emerging about the suspect in the murder of four University Idaho students but key questions about the his alleged motive and his connections to the victims are still unanswered. Bryan Kohberger’s lawyer has hinted that his client will waive extradition and will likely be back in Idaho within 72 hours. CNN Chief Law Enforcement and Intelligence Analyst John Miller joins AC360 to discuss when more details could be revealed.
