Jim Jordan Next Speaker?
« on: April 13, 2018, 07:18:19 AM »
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan is getting pressure to throw his name into the mix to replace outgoing Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, but he is not yet willing to say whether or not he intends to make a bid for the speakership in the coming months.

The congressman has not sent a tweet from his account since March 23 and made a number of television appearances Thursday morning following Ryan’s announcement.

Some within the conservative strategist world believe Jordan is not necessarily an outside choice to run for speaker, given that he is a vocal advocate for conservative policies and has the respect of his colleagues in the HFC. Although, they caution it could be more to bring light to the fact that past speakers have failed to come through on their promises to members and the American people regarding more transparency and efficiency in how the chamber operates.

“Jordan has always been kind of the conservatives movements horse,” a conservative strategist with over 20 years of Hill experience told TheDCNF. “The idea behind people pushing Jim Jordan is bigger than just him, per se. It is about requiring a complete reform in how the House operates. This is not peculiar to Paul Ryan and even John Boehner before him. They aren’t seeing results and process that is reflective of the promises that were made when they took over.”

The strategist says the HFC will be a key player in who becomes the next speaker, whether or not a member of the block takes Ryan’s place.

“Whether Jordan runs or not, the House Freedom Caucus is the most powerful block in the House. That is because they are the only mature group that knows how to operate as a faction,” the strategist told TheDCNF.

The HFC is a coalition of over 30 House conservatives, a faction that has enough clout to sway not only legislation but the upcoming speaker’s race.

His closest competitor is  Marxist RINO, Kevin McCarthy.

Not only yes, but next week.

I hear there's a loud hue & cry for Ryan to GTFO  NOW.

Screw McCarthy, he already begged for it once and was told to F off.  He can go be a weed legalization clown with his butt buddy Boner.

I would love to see Jordan and McCarthy run for Speaker. It would be a clear choice. BTW, Ryan has endorsed McCarthy.
