Republican Michael Waltz, who is supportive of McCarthy, is opposed to working with Democrats in order to elect a Speaker. 

As of Thursday afternoon, McCarthy failed to obtain 218 votes on nine ballots. At the beginning of the day, McCarthy urged reporters and Americans watching the votes not to read into the results, indicating voting could continue through the weekend and beyond.
