Rep John Boehner continues as Republican leader

Rep John BoehnerOur neighbor (West Chester, Ohio) and local representative John Boehner (R-OH) will continue to lead the Republicans in congress, although not as the Majority Leader – his current position. He was elected to the position of Minority Leader and accepted the vote of his colleagues in his leadership role after Democrats took majority control of congress in November’s midterm election. Boehner and Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO) will have a challenging job in keeping disgruntled Republicans united, but not as challenging as corralling the diverse views of Democrats by newly elected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Majority Leader Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-MD).
