According to the WSJ, that's how many House Republicans did not vote for Mc Carthy to be their leader
So, more Republicans did not vote for McCarthy to lead their party than the number Democrats that did not vote for Pelosi to be Speaker (and in essence be their leader, even though Hoyer has the title of House Majority leader)

1. That was in the caucus

The vote was McCarthy 159 to Jim Jordan 39. Jordan was an official candidate. Jordan represented the so-called "Freedom Caucus", which had wanted to mount a challenge against Speaker Ryan last year.

In the Democratic caucus Pelosi ran unopposed so it was a yes or no vote. The votes were 203 yes, 32 no, and 3 not voting.

In the actual election McCarthy got 192 votes to Pelosi's 220.
