And two GOP legislators from the steering committee confirmed that Jordan had won.
"The management committee unanimously chose Jim Jordan to be our next ranking member, and I think he's going to do a great job and he thought it was a good decision from the committee, "Scalise told The Hill. "You never know what's going to happen during these interviews."
This decision marks a turning point in the wake of the rumor that Meadows was undoubtedly competing for its role in preparing the steering committee vote.
Meadows came to the steering committee with a binder that probably contained a presentation of his vision of the group. And halfway through the meeting, Jordan entered the meeting behind closed doors.
Jordan then confirmed to reporters that Meadows had withdrawn from the race and that he had expressed his interest.
"I just talked to them about being a member of the OGR rankings and the committee discusses what they will do", Jordan told reporters. "I just walked in and told them that the post was interesting to me."
When asked if Meadows was running, Jordan replied, "No, he is not."
Meadows at the time, however, refused to say that he was not running.
Jordan, the highest-ranking member of the Oversight Committee, dropped out of the race at the House Judiciary Committee earlier in the day, fearing he would not be able to go through the steering committee.
But by participating in this race for supervision, Jordan did not face the bitter competition that he would have had if he had chosen to run for the Judiciary, in which Rep.

Before the steering committee's vote on monitoring, it appeared that Meadows was a mess.
Members of the House Freedom Caucus – who have the reputation of being a tough pest for leaders – have had to face a tough battle to win the presidency. The hard-line conservative group has long advocated for better committee assignments and leading panel positions.
