Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) believes that Republicans have a better chance keeping a majority after the midterm elections if they get the border wall started.
“What was probably the single biggest promise Republicans made to the voters in 2016? It was the border security wall, so let’s get that done here before the end of the fiscal year,” Jordan said. “Let’s do what we said and let’s head into the election and let’s keep the majority.”
“[W]e increase our chances of keeping the majority if we do a simple thing: do what we promised the voters what we were going to do. And again, this was probably the central thing that the people elected Republicans to do is secure our border, build the border security wall, so let’s get it done on this spending bill.”
