The House GOP is content to dance with the girls it brought.

House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) has defeated Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) 168-27 for the post of minority leader, and Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO) has won 137-57 over Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ) for the post of minority whip, according to Roll Call.

Outgoing Speaker Dennis Hastert declined to seek a leadership post after his party lost its majority.
