In a bold move that has energized conservative Americans across the nation, Rep. Jim Jordan has officially declared his candidacy for the esteemed position of Speaker of the House. This exciting development follows the ousting of Kevin McCarthy, and it’s clear that Jordan is ready to take the reins and steer the Republican Party in a new, principled direction.
Earlier this week, Rep. Matt Gaetz led a courageous ‘motion to vacate’ McCarthy from the Speaker’s chair. McCarthy’s tenure was marred by a lack of action on crucial promises such as fiscal responsibility, holding President Biden accountable, and securing our nation’s borders. It was high time for a change, and Jordan is stepping up to answer the call.
When asked by reporters if he was ready to take on the role of Speaker, Jordan responded with an enthusiastic “Yes!” In a memo sent to his esteemed colleagues, he stated, “Now is the time for our Republican conference to come together to keep our promises to Americans… I respectfully ask for your support for Speaker of the House of Representatives.” Jordan’s commitment to fulfilling the pledges made to the American people is unwavering.
But does Rep. Jordan have the support he needs to lead the charge? The answer is a resounding “Yes!” Prominent Republicans, such as Rep. Thomas Massie and Rep. Matt Gaetz, have already thrown their support behind Jordan. Their endorsement underscores the fact that Jordan is the right leader to unite Republicans and propel our party forward.
Yet, Jordan isn’t the only one vying for the Speaker position. Rep. Steve Scalise, currently the House Majority Leader, has also announced his intention to compete for this crucial role. The competition is heating up, and it’s a testament to the strength and diversity of the Republican Party.
On the issue of Ukraine funding, Jordan has taken a clear and principled stance. When asked if he supports Congress approving more funding for Ukraine, he boldly declared, “I’m against that… The most pressing issue on Americans’ minds is not Ukraine.” Jordan’s prioritization of American interests and the concerns of everyday citizens is in line with the conservative values that the Republican Party holds dear.
Rep. Jim Jordan has consistently proven himself as a steadfast defender of conservative principles. He fearlessly stood by President Trump during the Russia investigation and impeachment proceedings. His unwavering support for the America First agenda has earned him respect from both centrist Republicans and those who proudly identify with the MAGA movement.
Mark your calendars for October 11, when the House will convene for internal elections to nominate McCarthy’s replacement. The choice is clear: Rep. Jim Jordan is the candidate who can reinvigorate the Republican Party and deliver on our promises to the American people. Get ready for a new era of conservative leadership in the House of Representatives!
