Rep. Jordan reveals GOP will ‘keep the senate’ and ‘a good chance’ it will ‘take back the house’
October 13, 2020
The election will end with the Republican party maintaining its majority in the Senate and ‘actually a good chance’ of taking back control of the House, Rep. Jim Jordan, R- Ohio, told “The Sara Carter Show” Monday.
He said voters want someone who delivers and follows through with their promises. In that respect, President Donald Trump has not only has a strong base of support but independent voters who will back him come November.
One major issue concerning voters is whether Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden will pack the Supreme Court with additional justices, a policy he refuses to answer to. When asked by host Sara A. Carter about the mounting concern, Jordan expressed optimism that Republicans would have control over the executive branch and the legislature, keeping Democrats from pushing that agenda through in the first place.
“I think President Trump is going to win. I think we’re going to keep the senate I think there’s actually a good chance we take back the house. So I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Jordan explained.
He continued, “But if it would, would they do it? Of course, they would. That’s why they won’t answer the question. And the danger of this is first it’s been the precedent for 150 years, we’ve had nine justices on the United States Supreme Court, but if you expand it, you turn it into a super legislature.”
Court-packing, Jordan added, would make the Supreme Court, which is supposed to be an apolitical body, a “political entity” and “not a separate and equal branch of government that the founders envisioned when they set up this experiment they call America which has those checks and balances that federal system that protects your rights, protects your liberties, protects you from the rulesof the mob and everything else.”
Last week, Biden said that American voters don’t deserve to know where he stands on court-packing, dismissing it as an issue only Republicans are concerned with. Republicans argue that he will move forward with the process if he wins the presidential election.
