More Republicans Say They Won’t Support Boehner For Speaker

From The Daily Caller:

While ousting John Boehner from the speaker’s office still remains a long shot, a growing number of conservative lawmakers in the House are saying they plan to support someone other than the Ohio Republican during this week’s vote.

The latest Republicans to announce plans to oppose Boehner are Indiana Rep. Martin Stutzman, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar, Iowa Rep. Steve King and Virginia Rep. Dave Brat. That makes at least ten House Republicans who have publicly come out against Boehner’s re-election, with more expected Monday.

“After careful consideration, I have decided to vote for a new Speaker of the House,” Stutzman said Monday. “I have great respect for Speaker Boehner, for his time in office, and for the work we’ve done together. However, I do believe it is time to make a change.”

“Trust is a series of promises kept; my vote for new leadership reflects a promise I made to voters when they elected me,” Gosar said. “I cannot stand beside the same leadership that has offered up bills too large to read, used parliamentary tricks to bring bills to the floor and has refused to take swift action against the president and his administration’s unconstitutional actions.”

The official speaker’s election is set for Tuesday, when the House will convene for a public floor vote to open the new Congress.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
