The American Family Association (AFA, afa.net) is spreading the word today about the proven qualifications of Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, for the Speaker of the House post.
Jordan, a member of the Freedom Caucus, announced today that he will run for the Speaker position soon to be vacated by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.
"Paul Ryan's decision not to seek re-election opens the highest leadership position in Congress," said AFA President Tim Wildmon today in an Action Alert to AFA's 1 million-plus friends and supporters. "It will be the rank-and-file members of Congress who will select Ryan's replacement as Speaker."
Several other names have surfaced as Ryan's replacement, including Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La.
"McCarthy and Scalise are Ryan's top lieutenants," Wildmon added. "They are establishment Republicans who will continue business as usual. The next Speaker of the House must be a great leader, not just a good one. Congress needs a Speaker who has a proven track record with a convictional vision of greatness to restore and defend the constitutional republic of the United States of America. Jim Jordan displays such qualities."
AFA Action's legislative score card shows both McCarthy and Scalise score much lower than Jordan on issues such as spending, abortion, Planned Parenthood and filibuster support. Jordan also has a 99 percent composite score from other social and fiscal conservative groups, compared to 64 percent for McCarthy and 70 percent for Scalise.
"Congressional conservatives should not make behind-the-scenes deals with current leadership on who the next Speaker will be," Wildmon added. "Instead, House Republicans need to select Jim Jordan, a proven conservative Speaker."
