U.S. Congressman Jim Jordan will visit the Harding Home Presidential Site to meet with the public and to honor Warren G. Harding on Presidents Day, February 20. Jordan, a Republican, will be at the Press House on the Harding Home site, 380 Mt. Vernon Ave., from 10:30-11:30 a.m. to informally meet with members of the Marion County community.
Jordan, 53, has represented the 4th District of Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2007. He is a member of the House’s Judiciary, and Oversight and Government Reform committees. In the latter committee, he chairs the Subcommittee on Health Care, Benefits, and Administrative Rules. He previously co-founded the House Freedom Caucus and is serving as its first chairman. As one of the most conservative members of Congress, his efforts have earned him recognition from Citizens against Government Waste, Family Research Council, Americans for Tax Reform’s Friend of the Taxpayer Award and the 2012 Weyrich Award for “National Legislator of the Year.”
Prior to his work in Washington, Jordan represented Ohio’s 12th District in the Ohio Senate from 2001-2006, and the 85th District in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1995-2000. A native of Champaign County, Jordan graduated from the University of Wisconsin, where he was a two-time NCAA wrestling champion. He later earned a Master’s degree in Education from The Ohio State University and a law degree from Capital University.
