Frustrated Eric Burlison Still Supports Jim Jordan, Expects Deadlock To Continue

(Missourinet) Congress still has a divided house as the search for U.S. House Speaker continues. A third attempt at trying to vote in Ohio’s Jim Jordan failed to reach the 217-vote threshold Friday.

It’s left some Americans watching and Congressional members frustrated, including Missouri Republican Eric Burlison.

He tells Missourinet affiliate KCMO in Kansas City that he still supports Jordan.

It remains to be seen what the U.S. House of Representatives will do regarding the speakership position, but one hot item on the agenda is a request from the Biden Administration to give more than 105-billion dollars in security assistance to the military conflicts in Ukraine and Israel.
