House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) indicated he’s in great shape to run for speaker again.
“I think I’m in better shape with my own caucus than I have ever been in the last three years,” Boehner said in an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer posted on Monday. Boehner has already filed paperwork to run for speaker again.
Boehner has had to shoot down some rumors that he might retire at the end of 2014.
Some Republicans have also used association to Boehner as a line of attack on the campaign trail.
