For establishment Republicans, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is a problem.
The fact that Jordan has openly lined up behind Trump has not sat well with many of them and they would like him gone from the party.
The new redistricting map for Ohio makes it pretty clear that is what they are hoping to have happen in 2022.
Get Rid of Him
Gerrymandering has always been a problem in politics, but this is actually happening from his own party.
Rumors were going around months ago that establishment Republicans were going to redraw the lines to move Jordan into an area where it would be unlikely he would win.
What is really sad, however, is that it seems like Governor DeWine and company are now content with turning power in the entire state over to Democrats…

Kevin Eichinger, a spokesperson for the Jordan campaign, is not backing down, however.
He stated, “John Boehner tried to draw Mr. Jordan out 10 years ago. It didn’t work then. It won’t work now.
“Mr. Jordan is running for reelection.”
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former Governor Chris Christie are now part of a group hoping to fight back against blatant gerrymandering, discussing this on Fox News recently…
Over the last four years, Jordan has become one of the more popular congressmen in the Republican Party, very reminiscent of the in-your-face style of former congressman Trey Gowdy.
If they successfully push him out, this would be a massive blow to the new breed of Republican in the party.
