Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R‑TX) claimed it’s a mistake for those who support Rep. Jim Jordan (R‑OH) for speaker of the House to attack other candidates.
Crenshaw appeared on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday to comment on Jordan’s likelihood to garner 217 votes, which would give him the speaker’s gavel. This comes nearly two weeks after Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R‑CA) was ousted from the position.

“It’s impossible for any member of our conference to get 217 true believers — 217 people who truly think you’re the best, right?” Crenshaw said. “So, what I would really recommend to Jordan’s allies, too, is a lot of them have mounted this high-pressure campaign. They’re going to whip up Twitter against the people who are against Jordan. That is the dumbest way to support Jordan. And I’m supporting Jordan; I’m going to vote for Jordan. As someone who wants Jim Jordan, the dumbest thing you can do is to continue pissing off those people and entrench them.”
