In new campaign, Dem group targets GOP front-liners over Jordan speaker bid

House Majority Forward, a nonprofit with ties to Democratic leadership, is launching a new ad campaign targeting 11 GOP incumbents from swing districts and urging them not to support Rep. Jim Jordan’s bid for speaker.

Those GOP lawmakers with robocalls aimed at them include:

Rep. David Schweikert (Ariz.)
Rep. Juan Ciscomani (Ariz.)
Rep. Bill Huizenga (Mich.)
Rep. John James (Mich.)
Rep. Nick LaLota (N.Y.)
Rep. George Santos (N.Y.)
Rep. Anthony D’Esposito (N.Y.)
Rep. Mike Lawler (N.Y.)
Rep. Marc Molinaro (N.Y.)
Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.)
Rep. Brandon Williams (N.Y.)

Part of the transcript: “Republicans have nominated Jim Jordan for Speaker, who voted to overturn the 2020 election, defended the criminals who attacked the Capitol on January 6th, and is in favor of an extreme agenda to ban abortion nationwide, cut veteran benefits by 22%, eliminate health insurance for 21 million Americans, and fire 108,000 school teachers and aides.”
The backdrop here: Jordan’s wall of opposition has begun to cave with less than 24 hours before a crucial floor vote on his nomination for speaker. Several members previously opposed to his selection announced their support on Monday.
