Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Announces Challenge To John Boehner For Speaker Of The House

Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert visits Fox & Friends Weekend to declare his opposition to Representative John Boehner for Speaker of the House.

In announcing his challenge Gohmert had this to say to Boehner: “You deceived us when you went to Obama and Pelosi to get your votes for the Cromnibus; you said you’d fight amnesty tooth and nail, you didn’t! You funded it.”

Life now gets more complicated for Boehner.

I don’t think Boehner will lose his Speakership, but I do think this is the Tea Party/far right GOPers way of sending a very public message to Boehner.
