Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) expressed confidence in his chances of becoming the next Speaker of the House.
In a recent appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Jordan detailed his widespread support, mentioning, “We got three committee chairmen for me. I feel very good about that support.” He emphasized the importance of uniting the Republican conference and effectively communicating the party’s actions to the public.
The quest for a new Speaker arises after former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) was ousted and subsequently decided against seeking the role again. The two prominent contenders now are Jordan and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.).
Jordan, the current leader of the House Judiciary Committee, has been a staunch advocate for an impeachment inquiry into President Biden and boasts an endorsement from former President Trump.
As the Republican party gears up for discussions on their next Speaker this week, many GOP members have not publicly voiced their preference between Jordan and Scalise.
