After Rep. Jim Jordan failed to get the votes needed to become Speaker of the House, Rep. Byron Donalds (R) could be moments away from announcing his candidacy for Speaker.

"I don't know when," said Rep. Donalds when The Floridian asked him when he would enter the Speaker's race  Rep. Donald said that he would wait to see what happened with Rep. Jordan's candidacy.

For weeks, Donalds has been weighing out his options, and just taking a wait-and-see position.

Now Rep. Cory Mills (R), who has a close relationship with Donalds, has stated his support for Donalds.

"I supported @Jim_Jordan for our next Speaker. Unfortunately, my votes for him on the floor and in conference to remain Speaker was not enough. I now support @ByronDonalds for the next Speaker of the House," stated Rep. Mills.

Donalds received some support for Speaker during former Speaker Kevin McCarthy's nomination process and subsequent vote.
