The 118th Congress will run until January 3rd, 2025. This market resolves YES if at any point from now until the end of the 118th Congress, there is a "McSpeaker". I will not bet in this market to keep a level head about what a "McSpeaker" is. For instance, McCarthy or McHenry being elected speaker (not speaker pro tempore) would qualify. Surprisingly, Hern being elected speaker would also qualify, due to his association with McDonalds franchises and his nickname as a McCongressman.

If another speaker candidate emerges with a strong claim to being a McSpeaker, I would also consider that.

Edit 10/23: Byron Donalds also qualifies (Mc"Donalds" obviously).

Almost just resolved this NO but then I realized thereโ€™s still a year left for a potential McSpeaker XD

Even more than a year. The 118 Congress doesn't end until January 3, 2025.

key typo by a hill reporter for this market

@SemioticRivalry "taking the boys out for some mickey D's after this long, thirst-inducing speaker race"

Any candidates who like MC5 (the leftist rock group) should qualify. Also anyone who got a donation from McDonalds...

@MaybeNotDepends hmm, worried about McSpeaker concept creep here

I think there's an argument that Congressman Donalds should also qualify.

@Joshua this is absolutely correct, an incredible oversight from the McSpeaker committee; description has been adjusted
