“This Is Why Republicans Never Get Anything Done”: Jim Jordan’s Pursuit of House Speaker Position Is Hanging by a Thread After Failing to Gain Votes

Ohio’s Jim Jordan is preparing for a significant third vote this Thursday, which will determine if he will replace Kevin McCarthy as the House Speaker. However, Jordan’s voting trajectory is not in his favor.

On his latest count, he garnered one vote less than his tally on Tuesday, falling still over a dozen votes short of the necessary threshold.

Concern Over Threatening Texts

Nebraska’s Congressman Don Bacon highlighted concerns after his wife received anonymous texts with threatening undertones if he did not support Jordan. Despite these intimidations, Bacon remains convinced that Jordan won’t ascend to the House Speaker role.

“We’re confident next vote he gonna lose five or six more votes,” Bacon remarked in an interview with Fox News, highlighting the dwindling trend in Jordan’s support. “He’s gonna be going backwards.”

On Wednesday, Jordan faced opposition from 22 of his fellow Republicans, two more than the day before. Reflecting on this trend, Bacon mentioned to CNN, “I believe he’s done.” His wife, Angie Bacon, received unsettling texts like “Your husband better support Jim Jordan” and insinuations about his potential political downfall.

The Republican House is Divided

Notably, the recent votes also named former House Speaker John Boehner, who resigned his position in 2015 and has since taken up a role as a lobbyist. The Republican House members have been in a state of discord, more so since McCarthy’s removal from his role two weeks ago.

This division has left the House stagnant, raising concerns as a potential government shutdown approaches in less than a month.

In the past votes, given the GOP’s narrow majority, a significant portion of Republicans voted against Jordan. This trend was consistent on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

It’s Becoming Personal

Anna Paulina Luna, a fervent Jordan supporter, voiced her frustrations to DailyMail.com after the recent vote, “People keep making it about these personal issues they have with other members and I think that’s a reason why we need term limits in Congress.”

Others Think Jordan Will Succeed

Yet, some remain hopeful for Jordan. Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., asserted, “He’s got the American people behind him,” suggesting that Jordan will eventually rise to the position. He further praised Jordan in his conversation with DailyMail.com, asserting, “He’s an American hero.”

One person who doesn’t want to see Jordan succeed commented, “Weak, weak, weak, no wonder China and Russia want Trump back in the Whitehouse in 2024.”

Settle the Speaker Issue

Another commenter expressed the urgent need to sort out the Republican house noting, “We have a corrrupt dementia patient with his finger on the button. It’s time to move impeachment along before he lets another 5 million over the border. Settle the Speaker issue now.”

He Doesn’t Have the Qualifications

A person had strong feelings about Jordan’s abilities, stating, “Jordan is Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, but he says he’s never taken a legal bar examination, and his degree is from a small private law school that is virtually unknown. Resume checking doesn’t seem to figure in MAGA leadership contests….more focused words-per-minute talking ability!”

Not The Right Person For the Job

Another person, agreeing with the aforementioned statement said, “Folks, you can scream all you want and scale the Capitol walls, but Gym Jordan has absolutely no business being Speaker of the House and even his own party knows that!”
