Washington was rocked when Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced he would not seek reelection in 2018 for his House seat. His announcement led to immediate speculation over who would become the next Speaker if the Republicans maintain the House majority after the midterm elections.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told Todd Starnes "it's too early to be talking" about who could be a possible replacement, despite Rep. Jordan's name being mentioned as a candidate. Rep. Jordan did say that whoever the next Speaker is, they need to be consistent with the mandate of the 2016 election or "we're not going to be in the majority."
Rep. Jordan also explained why winning races in November is so crucial. "I think what's most important is we keep the majority so that the Speaker isn't Nancy Pelosi," Rep. Jordan said.
