Washington, D.C. (RELEASE from Representative Hageman) October 6, 2023 — Rep. Harriet Hageman (WY) today endorsed Rep. Jim Jordan (OH) for Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Hageman issued the following statement:
“Jim Jordan is the definition of a solid conservative and a truly effective leader, and I am proud to publicly express my strong support for him to become the next Speaker of the House. He is a friend and true ally of our America First agenda. Jim was one of the first members of Congress to provide counsel and guidance to our campaign to take back Wyoming’s lone congressional seat. He didn’t blink, he didn’t flinch, he was in from the get-go.
“As chairman of the Judiciary Committee, he has been a warrior, staying focused on stopping the leftist weaponization of the federal government opponents and rooting out Biden family corruption. He is our most critical leader on defending our borders and I was honored he allowed me to play a small part in helping craft H.R. 2, the most conservative border security bill this body has ever passed. Jim will fight against the Biden White House and Democrat controlled Senate, so that we don’t send another dollar, that should be protecting our border, to Ukraine to enrich their oligarchs.
“We desperately need a conservative leader who will fight against the growth of government, against increased government spending, and against the Swamp that controls Washington. Jim has been doing that his entire career, he will fight for our Constitutional rights, for a limited federal government, and for our America First principles. When we vote for the next Speaker, I will be supporting Jim Jordan, and I urge all my colleagues and the American people to do the same.”
