Washington, DC – Club for Growth members from throughout America prefer Representative Jim Jordan as the next Speaker of the House of Representatives by a 19 to 1 margin over House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy according to a survey conducted by the Club for Growth.
A sample of more than 3,800 members of the Club for Growth, a national network of more than 250,000 pro-growth, limited government Americans who share in the belief that prosperity and opportunity come from economic freedom, were surveyed. 95% picked Jordan to McCarthy 5%
“Jordan’s massive margin of support reflects the disappointment economic conservatives have in the current House Leadership,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “The Leadership failed to keep its campaign pledges to fully repeal Obamacare and control government spending. Not only is Obamacare still the law of the land, the House Leadership pressured Republican Members of Congress to vote for an annual budget that puts the U.S. on the path to a $1 trillion deficit by 2020,” McIntosh explained.
“We think Jim Jordan will help Republicans keep the majority. Multiple polls have shown an ‘enthusiasm gap’ favoring Democrats that could cost Republicans control of the House in the fall election. That’s what can happen when you don’t deliver,” McIntosh said. “We need effective conservative leaders like Jim Jordan who will keep their campaign promises if we are to keep control of the House out of the hands of Nancy Pelosi and her ilk.”
