House Speaker Paul Ryan’s announcement yesterday that he will not seek reelection offers congressional Republicans an opportunity to pull out of the political death-spiral that imperils their majority and invites the impeachment of President Trump.
The question is: Will the House GOP seize the opportunity to excite and engage voters indispensable to such outcomes? Or will it alienate them further, ensuring that the base stays home – with predictably devastating results?
That choice will be determined by whether the Republican caucus tries to fob off on its base another establishment politician, presumably drawn from the ranks of Ryan’s lieutenants. If, instead, in the days ahead the House GOP embraces as its next leader an authentic conservative with passion, energy and, most importantly, Make America Great Again principles, they will give the base a reason to turn out – and prevail.
Jim Jordan for Speaker.
