Three Days. 11 Votes. No speaker.

The House adjourned after a third day of voting that included Republican Kevin McCarthy suffering an 11th defeat in the race for speaker. It is now the longest speaker contest in 164 years. Republican Rep. Victoria Spartz backed McCarthy in the first three votes, and switched to “present” in the last 8 rounds. She joins AC360 to discuss how she sees this playing out.

Plus, CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju talked to McCarthy after the House adjourned for the night. He tells AC360 if the California Republican is still confident in his chances of being elected speaker.
