As the 2024 presidential election inches closer, the Republican Party finds itself in a state of anticipation and excitement. With candidates emerging from different corners of the party, the race is heating up, and the stakes remain high. One candidate, in particular, has won the hearts of many conservatives, including Ohio Representative Jim Jordan. Despite the rise of other potential contenders, Jordan has pledged his full support to one candidate – and other lawmakers should take notice and follow his lead.
House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan has confirmed his support for former President Donald Trump in the 2024 elections.
In an interview with Fox News on Friday, Jordan said that former VP Mike Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who are expected to announce a presidential bid soon, are “great guys,” but Trump has his full support going into the GOP primary.
Jordan’s comments come as the GOP primary heats up and two weeks after Trump was charged with 34 felony counts for his alleged hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
Jordan has stood by Trump as he faces criminal charges in Manhattan, launching an inquiry into the unprecedented investigation of an ex-president. Former New York County Special Assistant District Attorney Mark Pomerantz, who has pursued criminal charges against Trump, was subpoenaed by the Judiciary Committee last week. In February of last year, Pomerantz abruptly resigned along with one other prosecutor heading the Trump inquiry after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg expressed doubts about the case he inherited.
Jordan was sued earlier this week by Bragg, accusing him of “obstruction and interference” in the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation into Trump.
Trump consistently leads polls for the GOP nomination by double digits, and Jordan joins a growing list of Republicans publicly supporting him for the post in 2024. Six senators and at least 40 House members have all endorsed or expressed that they are behind Trump for 2024.
The 2024 presidential election has already created ripples within the Republican Party. With candidates vying for the top spot, many conservatives have thrown their weight behind their choices. For Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, his pick is clear- former President Donald Trump. While many may have expected the support for Trump to dwindle, it seems to only be gaining momentum among conservatives. The unwavering support from conservatives like Jim Jordan is a testament to Trump’s prowess in the political landscape. The future of the Republican Party remains uncertain, but one thing is for sure – Trump still retains a strong foothold in the hearts of many conservatives.
