Jim Jordan: 'No Chance' He Will Be Speaker Of The House

 January 5, 2023

If there is any chance Kevin McCarthy doesn't become the next Speaker of the House, then that means that somebody will take his spot.

One of the names that has been often floated is Republican Jim Jordan of Ohio.

Although there is one person who does NOT support that idea: Jim Jordan himself.

He simply doesn't think there's any chance he becomes the next speaker of the House.

He really only wants to chair the Judiciary Committee:

"You guys know. I like the ability to cross examine witnesses and get the truth for the country, so that’s what I’m focused on," he said.

On the first ballot, Jordan had received support from names like Reps. Lauren Boebert, Michael Cloud, Anna Paulina Luna, Andy Ogles, Mary Miller, and Keith Self.
