LONDON (AP) — British Conservative lawmakers forced a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Theresa May today, throwing U.K. politics deeper into crisis and Brexit further into doubt.

May vowed to fight for the leadership of her party and the country “with everything I’ve got” after opponents who have been circling for weeks finally got the numbers they needed to spark a vote among Conservative Party lawmakers later in the day.

The leadership challenge marks a violent eruption of the Conservative Party’s decades-long divide over Europe.
