Democratic Whip Katherine Clark hammered Rep. Jim Jordan in a House floor speech, during which she nominated Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries for Speaker.
House Republicans held a vote and kicked Jim Jordan out of the Speaker race. They will go home for the weekend and then try again to do the basics of governing next week.

Humanitarian concerns grew after an Israeli order to evacuate northern Gaza ahead of a ground invasion last week, causing residents to concentrate in the blockaded strip’s southern portion.
The IDF again instructed the roughly 1.1 million residents of northern Gaza to evacuate, threatening that “no matter where you are,” there will be “significant combat.”
