Boehner Reelected as House Speaker

The U.S. House on Thursday formally reelected John Boehner of Ohio to a second term as speaker in a mostly party-line vote of 220-192 over Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California. Ten other candidates also received votes among the total 426 cast.

  • Speculation about a potential conservative insurrection against Boehner, 63, failed to materialize to a significant extent during the voiced roll-call vote for Speaker.
  •  Boehner, the nation’s 53rd House speaker, was still able to obtain the majority all votes cast.
  • Nine House Republicans did voice support for other candidates — ranging from Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., to Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, to former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., to former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker.
  •  Boehner is soon to address the chamber.
