Boehner's future on the line this fall, say conservatives

Conservatives "are waiting to see what happens this month" before deciding whether they will try a third time to oust Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who they have frequently criticized for failing to champion conservative issues.

Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, and a group of other conservatives told reporters at a roundtable event on Wednesday that critical legislation this fall could decide Boehner's fate if he ignores their input.

Conservatives tried unsuccessfully to unseat him in 2012 and 2014. They could try again when Congress reconvenes for the 115th session on Jan. 3, 2017.

"I'm really waiting to see what happens this month," Labrador said. "We have a lot of big issues before us."
