DENVER: On the heels of Lauren Boebert’s endorsement of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) to replace Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House, ProgressNow Colorado, the state’s largest multi-issue progressive advocacy organization, released the following statement.

“Lauren Boebert has somehow managed to find an even worse choice than Kevin McCarthy to serve as Speaker of the House,” said ProgressNow Executive Director Sara Loflin. “In fact, Jim Jordan might be the worst candidate for Speaker short of Donald Trump, or Lauren Boebert herself. Endorsing a man credibly accused of covering up sexual assault when he was a wrestling coach at Ohio State shows that Lauren Boebert not only will tolerate extremists and election deniers to be third in line to the presidency, but she also has a pattern of turning a blind eye to victims of abuse.”
