Jordan takes his panel on the road to boost GOP

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is hitting the road to boost two top campaign issues for Republicans – border security and crime.

Jordan will hold three field hearings next month. Here’s what the agenda looks like:

Philadelphia: The committee will hold a hearing focused on crime on May 3. The panel has held crime-centered hearings in other blue cities including Chicago and New York City.

Tucson, Ariz.: Jordan will head to Arizona to lead the committee on a May 10 hearing about the U.S.-Mexico border. This will take place in vulnerable GOP Rep. Juan Ciscomani’s district.

Grand Forks, N.D.: Jordan will team up with Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-N.D.) to hold a hearing on northern border security on May 29. Armstrong is running for governor in North Dakota.

On the issues, Jordan indicated he wanted to send a signal to President Joe Biden through these hearings.

“We can talk about both of those issues which we think are critical,” Jordan told us. “This administration needs to change.”

Of course, the locations are notable.

Pennsylvania and Arizona are two key swing states Biden and former President Donald Trump will be fighting to win in November. Jordan is one of Trump’s closest allies on the Hill.
