Jordan went on to say, “we’re at a moment where we’ve got to have someone who’s willing to fight and stand up to all the abuses.”
“I talked to him yesterday, I’m convinced he’s going to, you know, he’s thinking about this fine governor you have as part of that amazing ticket,” said Jordan, referring to Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R).

Trump has yet to make a decision on another presidential bid and has instead been focusing on helping Republicans gain control of Congress. Although in an interview last month, he hinted at a 2024 run saying, “I’ve won it twice and now I have to win it again.”
