Report: Boehner may delay elections for majority leader, whip

Monday, October 5, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is considering postponing Republican conference elections for majority leader and majority whip, unidentified sources told Politico on Sunday.

Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) circulated a letter to House colleagues requesting a stay on the second- and third-ranking elections, Politico reported, which would make the Speaker election the only vote on the agenda for Thursday’s meeting.

Boehner has reportedly not yet agreed to postpone the elections, but said he would consult with GOP leadership on Monday and Tuesday.

“All leadership elections remain on Thursday,” Kevin Smith, a spokesman for the Speaker, told Politico. [ Source ]
