After two days of six voting failures to elect a Speaker of the House of Representatives, the members returned on Wednesday night and found themselves voting on a motion to adjourn.
Kevin McCarthy did not want to have a vote after losing six times. He does not have the votes to win on the next vote, and wanted more time to negotiate.
Democrats did not want to adjourn while Republicans did.
After taking a voice vote, the House moved to electronic voting which resulted in a close vote - Yahs 216 v. Nass 214.
House stands adjourned until noon on Thursday.
