The (Real) Race is On

Rep. John Boehner (R.-OH)  issued a statement this morning regarding Rep. John Shadegg’s bid for Majority Leader. No word from Blunt yet. Below:

"John is an important member of our Conference and a respected voice for reform.  His entry into the Majority Leader race is further proof the Conference isn’t happy with the status quo.  Our Conference will only benefit from a truly open and competitive contest based on ideas, principles, and abilities, and I welcome him into the race.  Between the two of us, we’re going to make this race about reforming how the House does business and providing a real alternative to the status quo. 

"I applaud his courage and sacrifice in making this run and look forward to seeing each of the other candidates’ detailed plans for retaining and expanding our Republican majority.  The campaign for House Majority Leader officially begins again today."
