Like Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstine before him, Florida Rep. Ted Yoho has announced on social media that he will not support Rep. John Boehner in his bid to remain Speaker of the House.
In a Facebook post Saturday night, Yoho wrote in part:
The American people have spoken loud and clear by their choice to elect conservative Representatives to serve them in Washington. It’s our turn now, as Members of the People’s House, to echo their demands by electing a new Speaker. The American people have allowed us to choose who is best suited to lead the House by electing a deep bench of diverse and qualified members. Our Republic is built on choice, and if needed, I would stand up to give our members that option.
