New Poll Shows Rep. Jim Jordan is Favored Candidate by Republican Voters to be the Next Speaker of the House

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the recent The Economist/YouGov poll of Republican voters, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“We have seen a tremendous level of support for Rep. Jordan since he announced his bid for the Speakership this past July. The free-market grassroots base is clear in their desire for Rep. Jordan to be the next Speaker of the House.”

“Free-market grassroots activists want Rep. Jordan because he promises to simply ‘do what we said’– that is, govern as he campaigns. Too often Republicans promise one thing on the campaign trail, but fail to deliver once elected. Based on Rep. Jordan’s record of fiscal responsibility and small-government principles, I am confident he is the man for the job. The potential for a Speaker Jordan would do wonders to fire-up the free-market grassroots base ahead of the midterm elections.”
