Republican Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) endorsed retired U.S. Army Colonel and Trump Administration Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower Casey Wardynski in Alabama’s Fifth Congressional District race.

“Casey Wardynski is a battle-tested conservative with a record of taking on the swamp,” Rep. Jordan said. “As Assistant Secretary of the Army, Casey helped President Trump build the wall, stop Critical Race Theory at West Point and root out waste. He is just the kind of fighter we need in Congress to take on Biden and the radical left.”

Wardynski thanked Jordan for the endorsement.

“If you’ve seen Congressman Jordan in one of the many House Judiciary Committee hearings, you know he’s a true conservative patriot," said Wardynski. "He has done a phenomenal job taking on Russiagate hoaxers, and I am honored that he has decided to endorse my campaign for Congress. Aside from being the ranking member on Judiciary, he’s a conservative stalwart who holds the Biden Administration in check. I look forward to working with him to continue the Trump Agenda, stop the reckless ways of DC and put an end to the crazy woke culture Biden and the far left are pushing on our nation.”

Wardynski is also a former superintendent of the Huntsville City Schools and a business executive.

Incumbent Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL05) is running for U.S. Senate so this is an open seat.

Jordan was elected to Congress in 2006 from Ohio’s Fourth Congressional District. He helped found and was elected by his colleagues to chair the House Freedom Caucus. Jordan's campaign said he is focused on his oversight role, helping lead investigations into federal agencies, including the IRS.

The Wardynski campaign said that in Congress, Jordan fights for fiscal responsibility, authoring the “Cut, Cap and Balance” plan to get the country’s finances back on track.

The primary election is on May 24, 2022. The winner of the Republican Primary will face the winner of the Democratic primary on the Nov. 8 general election ballot.
