Boehner Refuses to Endorse Cantor Successor
Speaker John A. Boehner refused to analyze Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s primary defeat on Tuesday saying “every election is different.”
He also wouldn’t make an endorsement for who should replace Cantor, R-Va., as the No. 2 member of the House GOP.
“Members are going to make this decision,” Boehner said, adding that he can “work with anyone” who might get the job — whether it’s current Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Rules Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, or perhaps even Idaho Republican Raúl R. Labrador.
