David Bozell, ForAmerica President, commented:
“After taking the pulse of the grassroots, it is clear they 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 and the list of broken promises from Congress is a mile long and growing. There is a thirst for new blood in leadership, and for someone who knows how to take on the power structure in Washington – and Jim Jordan fits the bill.”
The New York Times called ForAmerica “One of the great unexpected influences of the [2016 Presidential] election.”
