Jim Jordan ‘Open’ to Running for Speaker of the House

On 04.17.18 09:30 AM posted by Nick Givas

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio said he is “open” to running for speaker of the House, but thinks the GOP needs to focus on keeping its promises to the American people first.

“There is no race for speaker right now,”*Jordan*said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “Paul Ryan is the speaker. He’s indicated he’s going to continue to serve the remainder of this Congress. If and when there is a speaker’s race, I’ve been encouraged by colleagues to consider that and I’m certainly open to it.”

“What I do know is we better get focused on what we told the American people we were going to do,”*Jordan*continued.

“If we don’t, then we won’t be in the majority and there won’t be a speaker race, at least for Republicans. So let’s do what we told the American people we were going to do,” he added. “If we do that, I think we’ll do fine in November and then we can deal with the speaker’s race after that fact.”
