Reportedly, Representative Kay Granger (R-TX), a prominent Republican ringleader who fought Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) as he tried to win the Speakership, has decided not to seek reelection.
Granger, who was 80 years old, was getting flak in her Fort Worth district for being against Jordan and was up against a primary fight. The first time she voted, she chose not to support the Republican nominee Jordan. She kept doing so until a secret voting in the Republican conference took away Jordan’s nomination.
“I believe she’s worn out,” an insider said to the Fort Worth Report, which first reported the story with the help of “five reliable sources.”
Granger told the news outlet that she hadn’t decided what she was going to do yet, but she did say that she might make an update soon.
A Democrat politician and former lieutenant governor of Texas Ben Barnes called her “the most powerful Texan that we have.” Brown stated to the Report. Say, “I sure do hope she runs.”
People have said that the Texas congresswoman, who was first elected during the presidency of Bill Clinton, may have started to lose her mind.
Granger first voted for Mike Rogers instead of Representative Mike Johnson (R-LA), even though Johnson got the support of all Republicans who were voting. She then seemed to realize her mistake and changed her vote to Johnson.
Granger is the head of the important Appropriations Committee, which controls government spending. The members of this committee were overwhelmingly against Jordan’s campaign for Speaker because he is a fiscally conservative candidate.
In the two years since Granger joined Congress and was put on the committee, the US national debt has grown by $28 trillion.
Jordan is still in charge of both the Judiciary as well as the Weaponization Committees. He is widely seen as possibly the most powerful House committee chairman in more than a generation.
Update: Granger has recently made it public that she will not be running for reelection.
