Rep. Max Miller, an Ohio Republican who has publicly backed Rep. Jim Jordan for speaker, said that he will not support House Majority Leader Steve Scalise now that he is the conference’s nomination for speaker.

“Well, leader Scalise won, and it’s not over. I’m still throwing my support behind Jim Jordan for speaker, I’m not going to change my vote now or any time soon on the House floor,” said Miller.

Miller’s statement signals that we could be in for another long fight on the House floor as Scalise tries to persuade members to vote for him.

Pressed as to whether it hurts Republicans if they have to go through another protracted voting process on the floor, Miller said they should have changed the rules so that the nominee would need 217 votes to advance. “I completely agree, and that’s why we should have had 217 votes in that room to unify behind one person, and we don’t have that,” he said.
