Jim Jordan: Next Speaker Of The House?

I am going to be honest—I honestly didn’t expect McCarthy to be ousted until the 11th hour.

Yesterday, I reported that Democrat Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries was going to vote in support of the motion to remove Kevin McCarthy as House Speaker—that’s when I knew the jig was up for McCarthy.

Sometime before the removal of McCarthy, it was reported that Rep. Matt Gaetz was colluding with Jeffries to remove McCarthy—for some political favors in return, I’m sure.

Now that McCarthy has been ousted, rumors are swirling that Rep. Jim Jordan just might become the next Speaker of the House—these are merely rumors at this point, but they’re gaining traction as we speak.

Rep. Matt Gaetz, who led the charge to oust McCarthy, even named Jim Jordan as an excellent replacement for the now-former Speaker McCarthy.

Conservative Americans threw their weight behind Jordan for Speaker of the House—a position that GOP voters want to see occupied by a conservative firebrand like Jordan.

Politico claimed:

Rep. Jim Jordan is having conversations with House GOP allies as he seriously entertains a bid for speaker, two Republicans with direct knowledge told POLITICO.

A person familiar with the situation said an announcement that Jordan will throw his hat into the ring for speaker not necessarily imminent, but could formally come by the end of the week.

Despite growing calls for Jordan to run as House Speaker and rumors that he is entertaining a shot at the Speakership, Jordan recently told Sean Hannity that he would love to see former President Trump as the next Speaker.

“He’d be great… I want him at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but if he wants to be Speaker, that’s fine too,” Jordan told Fox News.

The Guardian likewise printed:

On Tuesday night, speaking to the Fox News host Sean Hannity, Jordan repeatedly declined to confirm his interest in becoming speaker.

“We got to come to a decision as a conference,” Jordan said, adding: “I’m gonna leave that to the conference.

Of course, I’ve talked to colleagues or colleagues have come to me and talked to me about that. But this is a decision for the conference.”

A source familiar with Jordan’s thinking, however, confirmed that he was considering mounting a run.
