    Boehner Elected New GOP House Majority Leader

    Boehner Elected New GOP House Majority Leader

    WASHINGTON -- Republican officials said Thursday that Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, has been elected as the new House majority leader.

    Boehner defeated Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., 122-109.

    He replaces Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, who had to step aside when he was indicted in an alleged campaign finance scheme.

    In the first ballot Thursday, Blunt led with 110 votes over Boehner, who got 79. John Shadegg, R-Ariz., got 40 votes.

    The rules required that the winner get a majority of the votes that are cast.

    Boehner had pinned his hopes on denying Blunt a majority in the first round, and then winning a run-off.

    In my opinion, not good news for the Republican Party. Boehner is probably the least likely of the three to bring real reform. Shadegg was the strongest on border security.

    The Republicans once again blew another golden opportunity to reign in their own party and steer the ship back in the right direction. I've never seen an entity so hellbent on destroying themselves and for what? The Republican party is finished. They are done being relevant in this country. A lame duck party with a lame duck jacka-- presidunce. Good riddance in Nov.
