Drew Ferguson (R-GA) solely symbolize their donors and known as on conservatives to again challengers to the 25 Republicans that didn’t again Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) bid for Speaker.

Mike Johnson (R-LA) ascended to the speakership, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) would have change into Speaker if it weren’t for the 25 so-called “intransigents” who didn’t again his race.
