Dear Representative Jim Jordan,
In light of Speaker Paul Ryan’s announcement that he will not run for re-election, the Speaker position will become available by the end of the year. Conservatives across the nation have been waiting for this type of change. The lack of transparency and the advancement of damaging legislation has led to the discontentment of the Republican base.
After taking into consideration many of the potential candidates in the House, we believe that you are the most qualified to take on the role of Speaker. You have been a consistent advocate for Conservative values that protect the integrity and safety of American families. You have given a voice to the forgotten by founding the House Freedom Caucus. Many terrible pieces of legislation have been stopped because you were willing to stand strong with a group of true Conservative House Members. Your voting record has been a true testament to your beliefs.
As you are making this decision, please consider where the Republican party stands at this point. Republicans in Congress have very few wins to bring back to their constituents which weakens their chances of re-election. With your leadership, President Trump’s promises, such as defunding Planned Parenthood and building a border wall, can be fulfilled. For these reasons, we ask that you formally announce your candidacy for Speaker.
