The US House of Representatives will not be elected before the end of October, as the Republicans are having internal issues. Due to Jim Jordan being the race, Republicans are not getting sufficient votes. As his presence in the party, 1st time the party got 200/217 votes and for the second time, the party got only 199/217 votes. There are 2 other members from the Republican party in the race for the election except Jim Jordan, so it might be difficult to come to conclusion before october end.
