"No one has demonstrated that they will do what they said and get things done like he did, and he did it with everyone in that town against him…”

The field of candidates for the Republican nomination has attracted a number of announced and potential candidates, each bringing their unique talents and perspectives to the table. However, none of them stands taller than our 45th President. Despite facing unprecedented challenges during his term, he remained steadfast, delivering a roaring economy and tirelessly working for the American people.
As a staunch supporter of Trump, Jordan has defended him against the recent felony charges brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. The Ohio representative initiated an inquiry into Bragg’s efforts targeting the former president, involving subpoenas to provide investigation-related documents to the House Judiciary Committee. Bragg filed a lawsuit against Jordan in response, alleging intimidation over Trump’s prosecution. However, U.S. District Court Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil denied Bragg’s request for a restraining order against Jordan.
During the NRA convention, Jordan highlighted the importance of Republicans winning elections to protect the Second Amendment. He warned against the left’s attempts to erode the rights of law-abiding American citizens by chipping away at the Second Amendment, mentioning red flag laws and the ATF’s pistol brace rule as examples.
He stressed the fundamental disagreement between Republicans and Democrats on gun legislation, arguing that meeting in the middle would mean compromising the Constitution. Jordan said, “I think people with common sense and logic understand these tragedies are terrible. We wish they never happened. But the answer is not to take firearms away from law-abiding American citizens.”
Jordan’s support for Trump in the face of ongoing legal challenges and an increasingly heated Republican primary contest solidifies his position as a prominent conservative voice advocating for the former president’s return to the White House.
