David Bozell on Speaker’s Race:
“Rep. Jim Jordan is the Best Man for the Job”
Conservatives want change in GOP leadership, given the current leadership’s abysmal failures on key conservative campaign promises.
(CLIFTON, VA, July 26, 2018) – In response to reports that Rep. Jim Jordan is running for Speaker of the House, David Bozell, President of the national conservative grassroots organization ForAmerica, released the following statement:
“Voters across the political spectrum are looking for new blood to replace the current GOP leadership in Washington, and Jim Jordan is the best man for the job.
“Jim Jordan is one of the only elected officials in Washington who means what he says and says what he means.
“Conservatives want change in GOP leadership, given the current leadership’s abysmal failures on key conservative campaign promises. Failure theater has become the norm on Capitol Hill. The list of broken promises from Congress is a mile long and growing.
“Current GOP leadership’s manufactured ‘government shutdown’ crisis has become so routine, it is now a yawner for many. They can’t seem to cut one red penny from anywhere or anything. They can’t pass a budget. Most of them still don’t read any bills. Our military is used as political pawns. Our borders are a mess. There’s no injection of fresh creative thinking to even attempt to tackle problems. Everything is run from the top down. When Congress absolutely must pass something – anything – to keep its own doors open, Schumer, Pelosi and K-Street somehow manage to run the show and get everything they want.”
In June, ForAmerica commissioned a national survey by McLaughlin and Associates that revealed 2018 Mid-term Election likely voters across the board—be it self-identified conservatives, self-identified independents, and even self-identified moderates—are even more likely to vote Republican if they knew the new Speaker of the House would come from outside the current Leadership apparatus

“If Republicans want to win, they must make clear to voters that their choice for Speaker is someone outside of current leadership, someone like Rep. Jim Jordan who is fighting against DC’s Swamp culture and is consistently advocating for Trump’s agenda,” Bozell continued.
The New York Times called ForAmerica “One of the great unexpected influences of the [2016 Presidential] election.”
