House Conservative: Boehner’s Speakership Safe

AP

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) said Wednesday that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is safe in his leadership position, despite concessions GOP leaders have made during the shutdown and debt ceiling debate.

“A lot of folks, again, are unwilling to challenge the status quo, especially if it’s their own establishment,” Huelskamp said on Newsmax TV. “I’ll just say, the class of ’94 seems to have a lot more guts and gusto than the class of 2010 because they were willing to take down Speaker [Newt] Gingrich. But I don’t see that happening anytime soon in today’s Congress.”

Huelskamp was one of a few House Republicans who did not vote for Boehner for Speaker in January.
