Los Angeles Times: California Republicans in swing districts backed Trump ally Jordan for speaker. “Before Jordan dropped out on Friday, Congressional Integrity Project, a Democratic-aligned nonprofit, released ads highlighting the Ohioan’s ties to the right wing of his party. The digital ad noted that Jordan founded the arch-conservative House Freedom Caucus, denied the results of the 2020 presidential election and is ‘arguably the member of Congress most involved in Donald Trump’s attempted coup.’ ‘Anyone who endorses Jordan and any member who votes for him is affirmatively voting for a coup plotter, an election denier and a foe of American democracy,’ the ad said.” [Los Angeles Times, 10/21/23]

Politico: New York Playbook: HELLO JOHNSON, BYE-BYE FRESHMEN?: “‘I think every single New York Republican who voted for Johnson has made clear they’re no moderate,’ Kyle Herrig, the executive director of the advocacy group Congressional Integrity Project, told Playbook. ‘They’re MAGA through and through.’ Herrig acknowledges Johnson is not yet a household name, giving Democrats an opportunity to define a figure who for most voters is a blank slate.” [Politico, 10/26/23]

CBS News: House Speaker Mike Johnson once referred to abortion as “a holocaust”. “‘Comparing abortion to the Holocaust is reprehensible and an insult to women across the country,’ said Hannah Muldavin, communications adviser for the Congressional Integrity Project, an organization launched by high-level Democratic strategists. Muldavin said, ‘This is yet another example of how extreme and out of touch with the country Mike Johnson is.’ She said the election of Johnson is ‘an endorsement of his extreme views that threaten our democracy and the rights of Americans.’” [CBS News, 10/26/23]
