Boehner Wins Re-Election as Speaker

Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) was re-elected Speaker of the House after a week of rumors of a possible Republican revolt, The Hill reports.

Boehner won a bare majority in a vote that saw eight Republicans vote for other GOP members, and several others who abstained from voting or voted "present." Two years ago, Boehner won all available 241 GOP votes.
