Statement on Speaker John Boehner's Resignation

Washington, September 25, 2015

“I thank John Boehner for his service to our country. Speaker Boehner didn’t have an easy job. Though I’ve emphatically shared my policy disagreements with him, I still respect him.  His decision to resign and put the Republican Conference and the institution before himself is indicative of the man’s character. Our Nation has undergone similar moments of major political change in the past and we’ve managed to come together to move the country forward. I will work actively with my colleagues to choose a new leadership team that can clearly and forcefully articulate a positive, conservative, governing vision for our country that honors the promises we made to the people who sent us here.”
