House Republicans are expected to try again Thursday to elect a Speaker.

Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan lost more support in Wednesday’s voting compared to the first round on Tuesday. And some of his opponents are objecting to strong-arm tactics they believe are employed by Jordan’s supporters.

Members of Congress say they’ve been harassed and one member of Congress says she received a credible death threat.
