Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has snubbed Mike Pence and Ron DeSantis to officially throw his support for the Republican 2024 presidential nomination to President Donald Trump.
Jordan said that, while former Vice President Pence and Florida Gov. DeSantis are both “a great guy,” he said he is “100%” behind Trump.
“No one has demonstrated that they will do what they said and get things done like he did, and he did it with everyone in that town against him,” Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said at the NRA convention Friday night.
“And that’s what I still respect about President Trump, and I’m for him all the way.
“I just talked to Vice President Pence. Great guy.
“Governor DeSantis, a great guy.
“When we formed the Freedom Caucus, there were nine of us.
“He was one of the nine.
“But I am 100% for President Trump,” Jordan declared.
“I always tell folks the Second Amendment is right next to the first for a reason.
“It’s darn important, and we need to understand that and not let the left continue to chip away because ultimately they want to get rid of it.
“But whether it’s the crazy red flag laws, whether it’s what the ATF is doing with the pistol brace rule, on and on it goes.
“They keep chipping away, but their end goal is to get rid of it, and we got to stop it,” he said.
Jordan made the remarks ahead of his speech to the National Rifle Association convention.
The convention was in Mike Pence’s home state.
And he still got loudly booed when he took the stage, as Slay News reported earlier.
Pence handled it with class but if he is getting booed by the NRA crowd he doesn’t stand a chance in the GOP 2024 primary.
