“We think Paul has the kind of vision and is the kind of messenger our party needs to accomplish the things we told the voters we’re going to accomplish,” he told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace.

“He didn’t quite get the endorsement threshold we have in our group, but a super majority of our members said we think Paul Ryan is the right guy at the right time to lead our conference.”

Wallace asked Jordon why he’s supporting Ryan if he hasn’t gotten the assurances he said he would demand from Ryan about changing House rules.

“We have a commitment from Paul to work on changing the rules and we may even get a change before the vote this coming Wednesday and Thursday,” he said.

Two key GOP groups – the Republican Study Committee and the Tuesday Group –  endorsed Ryan last week, making it almost certain the Wisconsin Republican will be elected the 54th Speaker.
