CALL FOR NEW GOP HOUSE LEADERSHIP
November 8, 2018
President Donald J. Trump
1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
Washington, D.C. 20500
Dear Mr. President:
The current Republican congressional leadership has failed the American people. While you have kept your promises, the establishment GOP leaders have been a drag on your agenda.
We write to encourage you NOT to prematurely endorse Kevin McCarthy for Minority Leader, and to instead consider an endorsement of a better fighter and advocate for you and for us, Jim Jordan.
The current congressional leadership failed to fund your border wall, repeal Obamacare, and defund Planned Parenthood. These were major campaign promises that motivated your base in 2016.They forced you to sign a bad spending bill that once again increased spending and went against everything you campaigned on. They failed to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for destroying evidence and lying to Congress about the IRS’s targeting of conservatives. They failed to seek accountability for what happened in Benghazi. They did nothing about the censorship of conservatives on social media and on college campuses. They worked against you far too often, and were far too timid, passive, and accommodating to the Democrats, who have proven they will stop at nothing to destroy your agenda and your Presidency. On the other hand, Jim Jordan has never been timid, passive, or accommodating to Democrats. We lost the House in this critical midterm election because congressional Republicans failed to keep their promises. Despite a time of peace, prosperity, and Republican control of the House and Senate, GOP leaders failed to deliver on nearly every major campaign commitment. Their performance is unacceptable. While your tremendous efforts to nationalize the election pulled some Republicans over the finish line on Tuesday, our base wasn’t sufficiently motivated to show up for a Republican Party that did not do what it said it would do.
With Democrats soon to be in power, your agenda and your Presidency will be constantly under attack.
The left will know no bounds as they fight to stop you and end your Presidency at every turn. In a few short weeks, Democrats will control the House, and every committee will be led by someone who fiercely opposes you. We need to put up a fight against what the left is about to do, and we need someone bold to lead it. The Minority Leader should play a critical role in contesting the Democrats’ tactics and encouraging fights in committees. Jim Jordan exceedingly outpaces Kevin McCarthy in both of these areas. He is effective on TV and has a unique ability to connect with and energize your base because of his relationships with grassroots leaders across the country. Our country cannot afford more losses. The American people deserve strong, principled, courageous conservative leadership to lead the fight against the vicious, appalling leftist tactics that will soon be on fuller display.
As your allies, we urge you to support bold, courageous new leadership for the GOP — new leadership that will have your back and fight for your agenda.
We urge you to support a clean slate of Republican leadership, including Congressman Jim Jordan.
Thank you for your transformational leadership of this nation and for keeping your promises. We look forward to working with you as you continue to make America great again.
