Jordan detractors believe it gets ‘a lot worse’ for him on a third speakership ballot

Multiple Republicans are predicting that Rep. Jim Jordan would lose even more votes if or when he moves to a third ballot.

“I personally think, if we go to a third vote, it’s going to get a lot worse,” said Rep. Steve Womack (R-Ark.), who has opposed Jordan through two ballots. “Around three is probably going to be the final straw.”

He’s not alone in his prediction. One House GOP member, granted anonymity to speak candidly, predicted 10 to 15 new “no” votes on a third ballot.

“I won’t vote for him again,” that GOP lawmaker said.

Jordan reiterated Tuesday after the second ballot vote that he’s not planning to drop out, saying “we’ll continue to talk and listen to our colleagues.”
