Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) will announce his bid for Speaker on Thursday afternoon, two GOP sources confirmed to The Hill.
The sources said that Jordan will send a letter to colleagues on Thursday asking for their support.
The Daily Caller first reported the Ohio Republican’s plans.
Jordan has been floated as a possible candidate to replace current Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) since Ryan’s announcement in April that he would not be seeking reelection.
Ryan, however, said on Thursday that he would not support Jordan as his replacement.
