WASHINGTON — U.S. House Republicans’ stalemate over who should lead the chamber for the next two years dragged on Wednesday, with Kevin McCarthy failing to get the votes needed to become speaker on two more ballots.

Taking to Twitter, Perry, R-10th District, who was backing Donalds, continued to drag McCarthy.

We can’t continue with the same failed policies, rules, strategies, and *leadership* that are killing our Nation,” Perry wrote, adding that Donalds “will break the status quo.”
