Rep. Jordan’s popularity skyrocketed when Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) withdrew from consideration after failing to garner enough support. As a close runner-up, Jordan has tapped into his deep well of support from his time as chair of the House Freedom Caucus, a group known for their unwavering commitment to conservative values.
While some moderate Republicans initially had reservations about Jordan, it seems that even they are starting to see the light. Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), an ally of former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), voiced his support for Jordan, stating that he believes Jordan is the best chance to stop President Biden’s dangerous policies.
As with any uphill battle, Jordan faces a few obstacles in his quest for the speakership. Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-SD), a fellow conservative, will be delivering a nominating speech on behalf of Jordan, which may not sit well with some moderates who are still hesitant about embracing the Ohio Republican.
However, it’s encouraging to see that even those who were previously staunchly against Jordan are starting to change their tune. Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID), who had previously vowed to never support Jordan, seems to be reevaluating his stance. This newfound openness is a testament to Jordan’s ability to bridge divides within the party and forge a path towards unity.
The ultra-conservative faction of the House, known for their unyielding commitment to conservative principles, has thrown their support behind Jordan. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who switched his allegiance from Scalise to Jordan, harshly criticized former Speaker Paul Ryan for his mishandling of the nation’s finances. Gaetz pointed out that under Ryan’s leadership, our deficits and debts grew at an alarming rate, and it’s clear that he sees Jordan as the antidote to this recklessness.
Even U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has weighed in on the matter, expressing his support for Jordan. Cruz, a strong conservative himself, considers Jordan to be a “good friend and strong conservative.” His endorsement further solidifies Jordan’s standing within the party.
As Republicans continue to rally behind Speaker Jim Jordan, it’s apparent that the tide is turning. Conservatives are yearning for a leader who will fight tooth and nail for their values, and it seems like Jordan may just be the beacon of hope they’ve been waiting for. The path to victory won’t be easy, but with the unwavering support of Republicans across the spectrum, Jordan may just have a fighting chance to lead the House and put a stop to President Biden’s radical agenda.
