Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican and a fierce Trump defender, won’t run for the US Senate next year to fill the seat of the retiring GOP Sen. Rob Portman, according to a spokesperson for his congressional campaign.
Jordan will instead run for reelection for his US House seat, the spokesperson said.
We’d be remiss if we did not point out that Gym Jordan represents OH-4 congressional district, and OH-13 is where Ohio State University is located. OSU is where Jordan was an assistant coach during the tenure of Richard Strauss, who has been credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 177 men, and of which Jordan was reportedly aware, and yet did nothing.
We’re not saying Jordan is guilty of anything, but it seems likely that he would be confronted with his past if he ran for a national or even state-wide office.
Seems odd to me that our failed political press doesn’t mention that OSU story in these reports of Jordan declining to run.
