The consequences of the ouster of then-Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy in October 2023 are becoming increasingly apparent after four months of missed votes, retirements, and a further narrowing of the party's already slim majority in the House.

Rep. Mike Johnson was ultimately chosen as McCarthy's replacement after weeks of turmoil, disagreement, and discontent in the lower chamber, which Republican firebrand Rep. Matt Gaetz started.

However, things went downhill since McCarthy’s ouster. Johnson is inexperienced and helped in expelling another conservative from the House. It will be hard for them to rebuild their machinery in time for the elections in November.
