New — A senior House GOP member told me he has spoken to 20 members ready to vote against Jordan and block him on the floor.
Jordan has had positive conversations and pushing for TUESDAY vote, another source saysGOP meeting Monday.
“We can’t reward this behavior,” member says

What is going to happen? No speaker and permanent dysfunction.
Nothing gets done without a Speaker.
I think some Freepers wouldn't mind that.
One Congressman says: "Jesus Christ wouldn't get 217 votes".
What a clown show. Jordan is the best pick seriously who the hell do they want..McCarthy again??
You say that like it's a bad thing.
Lock and Load! Form a circle. Ready Aim Fire.
It’s not but these RINOs are forever bleating how bad the shutdowns are etc. yet here they are...
Also, it might put off some voters longer term if they think electing GOPers leads to dysfunction.
Someone made that point to me today
Good, that line we have to remember when they come up for re-election. Scorched earth policy can run both ways.
They insist only RINOs can be in the speaker position. How quaint.
All this dysfuction is setting the stage for another massive omibus bill. The spending will continue apace regardless of who the R’s have as Speaker. It just won’t stop.
The more these clowns “do,” the worse America becomes for the people.
Doing nothing sounds like a great plan to me.
The problem is with a cadre of gop congressmen that are democrats in disguise.
They don’t want to be exposed, and they can’t let Jordan win the speakership.
It is kind of funny that they come and tell us that if we don't vote their way, the world as we know it will shut down. However, the moment they have to vote for a conservative, then it is fine if the world ends and a democrat takes over.
That kind of behavior should not be rewarded. It has been going on for a long while.
This report comes from CNN. It is the usual unnamed source (senior GOP official) characteristic of the MSM. Therefore, it is unreliable.
“it might put off some voters longer term if they think electing GOPers leads to dysfunction”
The GOP is dysfunctional because the party doesn’t stand for anything. That is the more fundamental problem. The only reason people vote for them is that they’re the lesser of two evils.
This is RINOS undermining the house so they can undermine Trump and absolve Biden of his bribes.
This is ridiculous; the long term effect is going to be that they lose the House next November. The jackass party is going to make political hay with this.
Come to think of it, the Republicans in the House are turning into a real JackAss Party if they keep this up.
Identified. Twenty more compromised GOP House members…
It’s CNN. Take it with a big grain of salt.
“The problem is with a cadre of gop congressmen that are democrats in disguise.”
Its more than a ‘cadre’. The party is literally infested with RINOs.
