These 20 Republicans Voted against Jim Jordan’s House Speaker Bid

Jim Jordan’s bid for Republican House Speaker was disrupted by a slew of Republicans who voted against him during the first round of voting on Tuesday.

Despite backing from former President Donald Trump and former Speaker Kevin McCarthy, the Republicans either voted against Jordan or abstained.

Below is the complete list of Republicans who voted against or abstained from supporting Jim Jordan:

Don Bacon (R-NE)

Ken Buck (R-CO)

Angelina Chavez-Deremer (R-OR)

Anthony D’Esposito (R-NY)

Mario Diaz Balart (R-FL)

Jake Ellzey (R-TX)

Andrew Garbarino (R-NY)

Carlos Gimenez (R-FL)

Tony Gonzales (R-TX)

Kay Granger (R-TX)

John James (R-MI)

Mike Kelly (R-PA)

Jen Kiggans (R-VA)

Nick Lalota (R-NY)

Doug LaMalfa (R-CA)

Mike Lawler (R-NY)

John Rutherford (R-WA)

Victoria Spartz (R-IN)

Mike Simpson (R-ID)

Steve Womack (R-AR)

Meanwhile, Trump said he was confident Jim Jordan would win the election for House Speaker.

“There seems to be great unification. I think Jim Jordan will be a great speaker,” he said.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) also supported Jordan, highlighting his dedication as “the voice of the American people who have felt voiceless for far too long.”

However, the division amongst other Republicans was obvious.

During Fox News host Brian Kilmeade’s off-the-cuff remark, he labeled Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) a “dumbass” for his vote for McCarthy over Jim Jordan.

Jordan and his allies regrouped following the vote after the 20 Republicans came out against his bid.

The Hill reported:

Jordan secured 200 of the necessary 217 votes, while Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) got the full backing of Democratic members, with 212 votes.

The House has been in recess since the vote ended, just before 2 p.m., and a second vote is now expected at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Jordan had gained some major momentum, picking up endorsements from key players who had initially said they would not vote for him.

But during Tuesday’s midday vote, 20 Republicans cast votes for other members.
