Buckle up: Kevin McCarthy told his GOP conference he plans to bring up the motion to vacate in the first House vote series today.

The news: Speaker Kevin McCarthy told his GOP conference he plans to bring up the motion to vacate in the first House vote series Tuesday, a source in the Republican meeting told POLITICO.

No deal? McCarthy told CNBC on Tuesday morning he’d give Democrats nothing in exchange for their votes to keep him in the speakership.

“They haven’t asked for anything. I’m not going to provide anything,” he said in a Tuesday interview.

Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries also wouldn’t comment on whether Democrats would opt to save McCarthy amid a right-wing rebellion from a small bloc of his conference: “That remains to be seen.”

“We are in the midst of a Republican civil war and it is undermining the ability of the congress to solve problems on behalf of hardworking taxpayers,” Jeffries said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
