Jim Jordan just gave the GOP base the rallying cry it so desperately needs

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, officially entered the race Thursday to become the next speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Now we can sit back and watch political pundits argue in circles over whether he has a legitimate path to become speaker if Republicans retain majority control of the House after the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

The truth is, no Republican running in any race this year has a path to victory right now. The Republican Party has an enthusiasm problem, and current leadership is to blame.
