WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio says the GOP lost its House majority in the midterm election because it didn't deliver on promises to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, fund President Donald Trump's wall and replace the Obama health care law.

Jordan, a founder of the conservative Freedom Caucus, is running for House minority leader in the new Congress against California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the current majority leader and pick of the GOP establishment.

Jordan told Fox's "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday that if he is elected to the leadership job, he will work on "doing what we told the American people we were gonna do."

Jordan says Republicans must be prepared to fight investigations of Trump and his administration that House Democrats plan when they have the majority in January.
