Louie Gohmert Announces Challenge To Speaker Boehner [Video]

REP. LOUIE GOHMERT: We've heard from a lot of Republicans that gee, Id rather vote for someone besides Speaker Boehner, but nobody will put their name out in the running, so there's nobody else to vote for, well this changed yesterday, Ted Yoho said I'll be a candidate for Speaker, and I'm putting my name also out there also today to be another candidate for Speaker, all people are welcome, unlike what some of the establishment people are saying that gee, if somebody votes for a candidate besides Boehner on the floor, Pelosi could win, that is hogwash. The rules are you have to get a majority of all those votes cast for an eligible person, which is any adult American citizen. There's no chance of Pelosi winning as long as 59 Republicans don't vote present.

If they vote for a person, whether it is me or Ted Yoho, or anybody else that gets in between now and Tuesday, and we have 29 people willing to vote for somebody besides Speaker Boehner, it may go to a second round or a third. And eventually the goal is second, third, fourth round. We have enough people that say, you know what, it really is time for a change, you deceived us when you went to Obama and Pelosi to get your votes for the CRominbus." You said you're fight amnesty tooth and nail: you did, you funded it.

And then you took the only hostage that Obama would like for us to choose, it was a terrible strategy and it follows a number of years of broken promises, it is time for a change, and a poll came out Friday saying 60% or more of Republicans in the country that voted in the last election, including independents who voted Republican, they wanted change, they want a different Speaker.
