In a stunning turn of events, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is facing opposition from within his own party. Eight members of the Republican Party have surprisingly voted alongside Democrats to push for McCarthy’s removal. This goes to show that even within their own ranks, McCarthy’s leadership is being called into question. It seems like the cracks in the GOP are starting to show, and conservatives are getting tired of weak leadership.
But fear not, because South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem has a solid guess as to who might take McCarthy’s place. Governor Noem has confidently claimed that there’s an 80% chance Ohio Republican Representative Jim Jordan will become the next House Speaker. And honestly, who can blame her? Jordan is a powerhouse conservative who isn’t afraid to stand up for what he believes in. He’s a true fighter and would bring the much-needed energy and backbone to Republican leadership.
Governor Noem knows how tough the role of House Speaker can be. She pointed out that when John Boehner stepped down, everyone rallied around Paul Ryan to fill the position. However, she noted that being speaker sets one up for failure, as the expectations are astronomically high. But with Jordan, the Republican Party would have someone who has proven time and time again that he’s willing to fight for what’s right. Jordan wouldn’t just be a figurehead; he would actively investigate the corruption in Washington, D.C., and serve as a beacon of conservative values.

Jordan is wasting no time in his pursuit of the Speaker’s position. He has officially declared himself a candidate and has started reaching out to other House members for their support. Representative Nicole Malliotakis of New York believes that Jordan’s greatest strength is his ability to bring everyone together, from the Freedom Caucus to moderates and conservatives in between. This speaks volumes about his leadership and the respect he commands from his peers.
But wait, there’s more! Even former President Trump has expressed his willingness to temporarily serve as House Speaker while Republicans search for a permanent replacement. Now, that would be something! Trump’s bold and unapologetic style would undoubtedly shake things up in Congress. He would bring his America First agenda to the forefront and put the needs of the American people above all else.
The Republican Party is at a crossroads, and it’s time for them to choose a leader who will stand tall and fight for conservative values. Whether it’s Jim Jordan or even the potential temporary stint of Donald Trump, it’s clear that the GOP needs a strong, unyielding voice at the helm. It’s time for them to set aside internal divisions and show the American people that they’re ready to take on the corrupt establishment in Washington, D.C.
