Trump Ally Considering Running for Portman’s Senate Seat

Republican Congressman Jim Jordan is reportedly considering running for Senate. The longtime Trump ally revealed that he is mulling over the prospect of running to fill the Ohio senate seat being vacated by Rob Portman. Sen. Portman revealed this week that he will not seek another term in the upper chamber citing difficulty between working across the aisle as one reason for not seeking re-election. However, Rep. Jordan hasn’t made any definite decision yet as a series of Republican and Democrat contenders have already begun to crop up.

Fox News reports:

“We haven’t decided anything,” Jordan said on “The Ingraham Angle” Wednesday night, adding that he is focused on his work in the House.

The speculation around a Jordan Senate run comes 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.

Portman served a decade and a half in the House before serving as U.S. Trade Representative and director of the Office of Management and Budget in President George W. Bush’s administration. He was first elected to the Senate in 2010 and easily reelected in 2016.

If Jordan decides to run he will likely already be one of the top candidates in the race, and help keep the Buckeye State red. Do you think he plans to run? Tell us what you think in the comments below!

YES! He has NEVER backed down! Think he would make a great president AFTER Trumps serves his next term. Four more good men who stand their ground Devin Nunes (fought against the B/S anti-Trump investigations AND uncovered a lot of wrong doing)Josh Hawley (started warning against big tech the minute he was sworn in), Ted Cruz surprisingly a fantastic lawyer, Tom Cotton doesn’t back down. if you notice these men are the biggest DEM targets.

We all back Jim Jordan and agree that he can move up the ladder easily – however, the GOP needs to make sure they can produce other like minded and electable candidates to fill his current seat.

Just like with our seat here in GA. Kemp should have appointed Doug Collins to fill the seat, but he gave it to Lofleur(?). Especially since Trump wanted him. Proves Kemp didn’t really care what happened. If he did, we still would have kept the Senate!

How could Doug Collins not make the runoff? Probably stolen from him so the Dems could run against two weak candidates either of which did not align themself with Trump until just before the runoff election.

Hey, Anniedawn! I lived in California for 18 years and never understood how Boxuh and Feinboig and Pooloosly kept getting re-elected. I believe Californians vote solely on name recognition and not on qualification. So I moved to Oregon and discovered that many of the San Francisco FAGs did the same. And now we have a self-proclaimed bi-sexual governor that is supported by the transplanted San Francisco FAG crowd in Portlandia and Yoogene. Oh, Gawd! I love Orygun, but where do I go next to get away from Brownie and Ronnie and Jeffey and DeFuzzio? Just like in Kahliphornio, they are locked in.

YES!!! Some idiot lib tried to tell me that, when Philly has 126% voters for a lib, it is because of the Universities there. The Students ALL vote for a Lib. I said how can they do that, when their DLs are from all from their home states?? He never came back with an answer. That was in obama’s second Election!! SO the FRAUD was already IN THEN

I believe He is one of the best in the senate and knows how to defend the rights of the party and never slips to cross over the isle, I would love him to stay and continue his seat as I believe without him things will get even worse, I praise him for his work and his honor and discretion in his party, he is a man you can trust and when Trump wins the election in 2024 he will be needed more so to defend his policies, God Bless Jim Jordan in my eyes is in the top 2 in the republican Party, If he goes the party will come apart at the seams, God Bless him and keep him in our Senate anyway possible!

Need ALL the Strong and “for the People” Congressmen to move to the Senate, and groom the “young” conservationists to take up the “helm” for the House. Having a BACKBONE and the principals to stand UP and be Strong, for the Fight. And that is what it has become….. The Left, has LOST their purpose that they were elected to do. They are there for themselves and what they can get. Greed and evil, have taken their “hearts”, and that is “ify”, to destroy our Great America!!! God Bless you Jim Jordan, and keep strong!!!!!!!!

Being an old lady I remember when the Congress, Presidency and Supreme Court were Democrat. They started off this same way in 2009. They screwed up so bad that they lost HUGELY in 2010. What they are doing now is scary. Obama politicized our intelligence community but Biden is politicizing our military. “Domestic Terrorists” = any American not a Democrat.
