“The National Federation of Republican Women is pleased to congratulate Ohio's John Boehner, who has won reelection as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives for a second term. Speaker Boehner is to be applauded for his continued leadership in Congress fighting for smaller government, fiscal responsibility and greater government accountability, and, in his reelection today, winning what NBC News calls the 'overwhelming support of the GOP.'
