Jim Jordan Drops Out of House Judiciary Committee Race

House Freedom Caucus leader Jim Jordan is  dropping out  of the running to become ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee.

Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, has the most seniority for the position.

That doesn't guarantee a win, but can be more appealing to the steering committee.

But on Thursday, Jordan's office said he bowed out after learning he wouldn't have support from GOP leaders.

Rep.

Steve Chabot of Ohio and Rep.

Doug Collins of Georgia are still in the running for the post.

The announcement comes just two weeks after  Jordon lost his bid  for House minority leader to Rep.

Kevin McCarthy.

It's unclear if Jordan will now run for the Oversight Committee where his colleague Mark Meadows has applied.

As  the Washington Post reports , Meadows said earlier this week he and Jordan are best friends in Congress and "would never run against each other." Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
