Here Are The Republicans NOT Supporting Jim Jordan For Speaker



I am split on Jim Jordan for Speaker.

So is the Republican Party.

For years, Jim Jordan seemed like a great Republican fighter…

He was pro-Trump.

Be barked a big bark.

But then I started to realize it may be all bark.

I asked someone recently to tell me one thing Jim Jordan has actually accomplished, not just yelling at someone when they testify before Congress, but what is one thing he’s actually done that made a difference?

I could not get an answer.

Perhaps you can tell me in the comments?

Again, I WANT TO like and support him, and at a surface level I sure do.

But then I see him post stuff like this:


Is that what we want?

More war?

More money leaving the USA?

I’m sorry folks, I’m just very sick and tired of that story and I am not swayed by the fact that “it’s Israel.”

I support Israel 100%.

I bless Israel.

I would never curse Israel.

But more war?

More money?

More fighting for someone else’s borders while ours remain as open as Kamala Harris’…..errrrr, never mind.

So there is confusion out there regarding Jim Jordan.

And I don’t know what the right move is here.

Actually, I do.

Let’s have 150 rounds of voting for Jim Jordan and then when that fails let’s go back to the real plan, SPEAKER TRUMP!

Let me wrap this up with my original headline…

I’ve got a full list of the Republicans who are currently not supporting Jim Jordan:


From the NY Post here’s the breakdown:

Reps. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) plan to back House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.), who initially edged out Jordan in a tight 113 to 99 closed-door vote to be the speaker-nominee but dropped out of the race last week after failing to lock down more support.

“I’m gonna vote the way I voted the first time, the first election we had,” Kelly told reporters Monday. “Integrity is the most important thing that all of us have. There’s nothing more important than that. When I see what’s going on in that conference, and understand that we had an election, and we elected somebody, and because people in that conference didn’t agree with the election, ‘no, no, no, we’ve got a stop it all now, and we’ve got to have another election.’ The real man in the room is Steve Scalise.”

Diaz-Balart expressed displeasure at Jordan’s apparent pressure strategy to put holdouts on the spot Tuesday despite lacking unanimous support from the conference.

“A little bit of advice if anybody is trying to get my vote,” Díaz-Balart told reporters. “The last thing you want to do is try to pressure me because then I close out entirely.”

“If folks think that they can pressure me, that’s where they lose me,” he added.

Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), who has vowed to back former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) over Jordan on the House floor, said “no,” when asked after Monday’s meeting if his mind was changed.

Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY), reportedly the last House lawmaker to leave Monday’s conference meeting with Jordan, has also indicated that he’ll vote for McCarthy, telling CNN host Jake Tapper that he informed the Ohio Republican that he’s not a “hell no,” but that, “unless you have the votes, you know, I’m not going to be there.”

Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.) is still a no on Jordan after Monday’s meeting as well, tweeting, “I’m not budging. I’m a five-time commander and deployed to Middle-East four times. I’ll do what is best for country.”

Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) indicated that he currently doesn’t support Jordan but is “open-minded.”

“We’re gonna meet and I am a no right now but I told him I would be open-minded to having that conversation,” Buck, who reportedly wants to know whether the Trump-endorsed Jordan accepts that President Biden legitimately won the 2020 election, told reporters.

Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-Ind.) said she’d only vote for Jordan Tuesday if her vote is the deciding one.

“If he doesn’t have 217, the best I can do is maybe vote present..I’m okay to be 217, but if he has 210, I’m not going to be 211,” Spartz said.

McCarthy vows to do ‘everything’ he can to help Jim Jordan become House speaker
Despite the holdouts, House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) declared after the GOP conference meeting that “Jim Jordan will be our speaker.”

That’s what I think…

And that’s what these Republicans think.

But what do YOU think?
