Jim Jordan Addresses Senate Speculation

Republican Representative Jim Jordan is putting the speculation that he may be planning to run and fill the seat left Rob Portman to rest. The Ohio representative says while he’s flattered by the outpouring of support he believes he can better serve Ohioans in the House of Representatives.

Fox News reports:

A spokesperson for Jordan’s congressional campaign told Fox News that he is “honored by the overwhelming encouragement he has received to run for the United States Senate.”

“However, he is solely focused on representing the great people of Ohio’s Fourth District, and will not be running to fill the seat of retiring Senator Rob Portman,” the spokesperson said. “Mr. Jordan believes that at this time he is better suited to represent Ohioans in the House of Representatives, where as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, he can advance an America first agenda, promote conservative values, and hold big government accountable.”

The speculation around a Jordan Senate run came after Portman on Monday said he wouldn’t seek a third term, pointing to congressional gridlock as a reason.

“I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision,” Portman said.

Sad to hear that! Jim Jordan would be a GREAT senator like Hawley and Cruz. He wouldn’t put up with the DIMM bulls***! You Buckeyes have anyone else similar? No RINOs please!

I’m at a complete loss as to why AOC is still around. She is so incredibly stupid regarding history and has NO common sense to speak of. Plus, she’s reported to have syphoned campaign money to her boyfriend. Can this get any worse??!!

Jim Jordan is a rock star and would make a fantastic senator. Loss for the house, but hopefully he could be replaced with someone just as good. Rob Portman is a complete liberal jackass! Married to someone who is uber liberal. I remember when he supported marriage between a man and a woman, then his son came out as gay. Now you know the rest of the story!

i remember when the priest in my episcopal church outed his 15 year old son as gay to the congregation……

I have been following Jim Jordan for a while and believe that ‘He’ is Genuine with his passion for Republicans to Honor The Rule of Law and Our Constitution and that is the reason I am speaking up for ‘Him!’ I am Not a Republican – My entire family and Myself are ‘Not Republicans and in fact, I did not want President Trump to run as a Republican – I Stand With: We The People – To Stop all this Evil with the Evil Cartels – Evil Medias – -The Rothchilds and The Banks of London – All Against Our United States For America – The United States of America is an Evil Corporation in Washington, D.C. & Virginia – Against We The People for Decades! We Must Wake Up as We The People and Become ‘Warriors For Our Republic and Nation – We Must Do This Right Now – Unite and Come Together – We Are The Leaders with G-d and Country! Stand Together Right Now – Not wait for 2024 – The Time is ‘Now1’ Rhoda Gelman
