Who Is Jim Jordan?

MADISON, Wis. — As Derrick Van Orden, Bryan Steil, Mike Gallagher and the rest of Wisconsin’s Republicans line up behind Jim Jordan in today’s vote for Speaker, here are a few quick things to know about Jordan’s extreme record in DC:

  • Jim Jordan Is Congress’ Leading Election Denier. In the wake of Trump’s 2020 loss, Jordan lied incessantly about the results, making numerous baseless claims of fraud and pushing for Mike Pence to overturn the election by rejecting electoral votes.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Joe Oslund issued the following statement:

“Jordan’s attacks on the Medicare and Social Security benefits working Wisconsinites depend on, his anti-abortion extremism, and his incessant lies about our elections are all deeply out of step with Wisconsin values. With this vote, Bryan Steil and Derrick Van Orden are putting Jim Jordan’s DC extremism ahead of finding meaningful solutions to issues that matter for Wisconsin families.”
