Could Jim Jordan be the adult in the room in the raucous GOP of today?

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus. He has a long history of being a thorn in leadership’s side. Jordan helped elect Kevin McCarthy as speaker; now he’s heading a key subcommittee on the Judiciary Committee. House Speaker-elect Jim Jordan’s metamorphosis from insurgent to loyal lieutenant is striking. McCarthy cultivated Jordan’s friendship and allowed him a seat at the table. Jordan’s bombastic style has guaranteed a high profile, but there’s a limit to how far he’s willing to go.
