As lawmakers prepare to select new leadership on Tuesday, conservative movement powerhouse Citizens United is urging Republicans to replace Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) as Speaker of the House.
“It’s clear to Citizens United and millions of grassroots conservative activists nationwide that the time has come for new conservative leadership in the People’s House,” Citizens United president David Bossie, a former top aide to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, said in a statement provided to Breitbart News. “We need a Speaker who will stand up to President Obama’s dangerous policies and drive an optimistic conservative agenda. The failed status quo should not stand.”
There are currently two Republican candidates for Speaker other than Boehner, Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Ted Yoho (R-FL). For Citizens United — along with scores of grassroots groups both national and local across America — to throw its support into the movement to replace Boehner is a sign that opposition to his leadership is growing. And Boehner is feeling it.
