Boehner

"Boehner" has been used a total of 72 times by the politicians and political influencers that NPR is tracking.

Why We're Tracking This: If Republicans win control of the House on Election Day, the odds are good that current Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio will be the next Speaker. Could he then become as much of a lightning rod for criticism from Democrats as current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been from Republicans?
