RELEASE: We Support Jim Jordan for Speaker

Alexandria, VA — Senate Conservatives Action President Ken Cuccinelli made the following statement regarding Congressman Jim Jordan’s announcement today that he is running for Speaker of the U.S. House:

“Jim Jordan is one of the most principled and proven conservative fighters in Washington. Unlike the current leaders of Congress, Jim has fought tooth and nail to help President Trump implement a conservative agenda that stands up to special interests and benefits hard-working Americans.

“Kevin McCarthy is not a conservative. He has supported budget-busting spending bills, massive increases in debt, and taxpayer funding for Obamacare, amnesty, and Planned Parenthood. McCarthy as speaker would be more of the same old tired approach of giving into Democrats and failing to lead.”
