Jim Jordan Has Announced His Run for Speaker of the House

After a large grassroots movement urged Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to become the next Speaker of the House, he has officially made his announcement to run.  He stated, “President Trump has taken bold action on behalf of the American people. Congress has not held up its end of the deal, but we can change that. It’s time to do what we said.”  Eagle Forum is proud to support him during this endeavor.

Jordan is an original founder of the Freedom Caucus which gives a voice to Conservatives who are often overlooked in Congress.  He has a proven record of prioritizing families and advancing President Trump’s agenda. He has been a Conservative vote on issues such as life, border security, healthcare, and government spending.

Recent leadership has failed to repeal Obamacare and reign in wasteful spending.  When the House passed this year’s terrible Omnibus a day after it was released, Jordan voted against it.  When leadership crafted an immigration bill that gave amnesty to millions, Jordan voted against that as well.  He has consistently shown that he will not be swayed by those in leadership, but will stand up for those he represents.

Eagle Forum has collected over 1,200 signatures from grassroots advocates across the nation in support of his leadership and their voices have been heard.

Eagle Forum Chairman, Anne Schlafly Cori, said, “The American people have lost trust in the abilities of Congress. With Jim Jordan’s integrity and proven pro-family record, he is the principled conservative leader that the House needs.”
