This week, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is leading the race for the next Speaker of the House, with 152 Republicans having expressed their support for him in a secret ballot. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) has also announced his support for Jordan, citing their shared views on defense funding and other appropriations. Jordan has expressed confidence in his chances, having stayed in Washington over the weekend to meet with GOP lawmakers and address their concerns.
