Conservatives Hopeful About Race to Replace Ryan

FedUp PAC Staff

Conservatives are divided on the probable outcome of the race to replace Speaker Paul Ryan as the top Republican in the House, but a majority believe he will be followed by a conservative.

More than 56% say that the new GOP leader will be someone who will “faithfully promote the agenda that gave Republicans the Presidency and Congress in the 2016 elections.”  However, 26% think it more likely that the Washington establishment will succeed in electing someone who will “block the conservative-populist agenda.”

The poll was taken after Ryan had endorsed Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy as his successor and Majority Whip Steve Scalise had declined to challenge McCarthy.  Rep. Jim Jordan, a leader of the Freedom Caucus, seems to be the congressman most likely to contest the election.

FedUp PAC is a grass roots organization that wants constitutional conservatives to take over the GOP because Americans are fed up with the Republican establishment.  It is not affiliated with any candidate or committee.
