House Republicans and Democrats gather Tuesday morning for the first time since Matt Gaetz filed his resolution to oust Kevin McCarthy.

Lawmakers will convene Tuesday morning in their respective party caucus meetings for the first time since Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) followed through on his long-promised effort to try and oust Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

Who to watch? House Democrats, who may control the fate of McCarthy’s speakership depending on how they approach the resolution. We’ll be watching for any indications from the leadership team after members meet.

McCarthy posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Monday night: “Bring it on.” That prompted a clap back from Gaetz: “Just did.”

Timing: The resolution (or an effort to table it) must occur within two legislative days. That means it could come up for a vote anytime after the chamber comes in at noon.

One other thing to watch: Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) was unharmed after an armed carjacking in Navy Yard on Monday evening, but expect the incident to prompt a new wave of discussion about member safety and security — as well as crime in the nation’s capital.

It’s the second violent incident involving a sitting member of Congress in Washington this year — after Rep. Angie Craig (D-Minn.) was assaulted in her apartment building in February.
