Representative Rogers Restrained From Attacking Representative Gaetz

McCarthy would end up becoming Speaker of the House of Representatives on the very next vote, but Representative Mike Rogers was NOT happy with Represenative Matt Gaetz for his actions during the 14th vote.

Mike Rogers had to be restrained from attacking Matt Gaetz during Congress.

Rogers, furious that Kevin McCarthy of California had just missed securing the speakership by half a vote, directed his anger at Republicans Matt Gaetz and Lauren Boebert for simply voting "present" instead of for McCarthy.

After the vote, McCarthy and Gaetz had a short discussion. It was shortly after that that Rogers approached Representative Gaetz of Florida.

Rogers walked toward Gaetz and leaned over the three members between him and Gaetz to say something to the man who had nominated Donald Trump for Speaker.

CSPAN cameras then caught a man who is believed to be Richard Hudson, a Republican from North Carolina, come "behind Rogers, put his hand over Rogers’s mouth, and pulled Rogers away from the confrontation."
