Jordan can drain D.C. swamp, says political activist

Rep. Jim JordanAn Ohio congressman being mentioned for the next House Speaker represents the conservative alternative, says a political activist.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is reportedly in the lead to replace Speaker Paul Ryan, with current Majority Whip Steve Scalise as his political wing man.

But Rep. Jim Jordan is said to be considering a run, too.

"Jim Jordan has proven that he is more in line with the Republican platform and the president's America First policies than either McCarthy or, in my opinion, even Scalise," observes Rob Chambers, vice president of AFA Action.


Chambers and AFA Action, the political arm of American Family Association, ripped Ryan's tenure as Speaker in an April 13 email to supporters. 

The email also touted Jim Jordan's voting record while suggesting that McCarthy has received Ryan's "swamp seal-of-approval," referring to the ongoing, back-scratching politics of Washington, D.C.

Echoing the statements of the AFA Action Alert, Chambers tells OneNewsNow it is time for grassroots conservatives to insist on a Speaker of the House who will "drain the swamp" of the bureaucracies that curtail our liberties.

McCarthy has "baggage" that conservatives are unhappy with, says Chambers, so "establishment" Republicans hope to sway them with the more conservative Scalise.

"Well, Scalise is Paul Ryan 3.0 and McCarthy is Paul Ryan 2.0," complains Chambers. "We need to put an end to this. We need to start over with a constitutional conservative."
