Jim Jordan announces run for Speaker
[thehill.com]

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is running for Speaker of the House, his spokesperson confirmed to The Hill.

Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, could attract support from hardline conservatives: he was the first-ever chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said Jordan would be his first choice for the top job.

Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) also threw his support behind Jordan.

“When it comes to negotiating on behalf of the House GOP Majority with the Senate and White House, I can’t think of anyone stronger than @Jim_Jordan to be our next Speaker of the House. He never backs down and has my full support,” Banks wrote on X, the platform previously known as Twitter.

McCarthy, however, trounced Jordan for the job of House Republican leader in 2018 in a 159-43 vote.

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.), meanwhile, is supporting current Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) for Speaker and making calls to earn support to be the next majority leader, per three sources familiar.

Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) was ousted from the role in a 216-210 vote on Tuesday, a never-before-seen event that leaves the lower chamber of Congress in chaos.

Oooh there's another one that should be expelled. Gaetz I think will get away from the findings of indecency because he was trafficking underage females. Jordan - for whatever reason, we always seem to get those guys who prey on our boys.

Emmer is playing the long game. He is a wing-nut reactionary.

from The Twitt - too good to pass up

Kevin McCarthy was abused so badly that Jim Jordan had to pretend he didn’t see any of it.
