WASHINGTON−Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan feels good − “very good” − about his chances of becoming the next Republican speaker of the House, and he’s not being shy about it.
From conservative hardliners to moderates to former President Donald Trump, Jordan says he has “amazing feedback and incredible feedback.”
“We got three committee chairmen for me. I feel very good about that support,” he said to host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
His top competitor is House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., the No. 2 ranking Republican behind ousted former Speaker Kevin McCarthy and someone who calls him a friend.
