This just came in to us a few minutes ago from Ralph Kraus in Erie county, Ohio:

Subject: The Reaction of House GOP Leadership to Cantor’s Shocking Defeat? Answer – Elect another Cantor to Majority Leader
From: “Ralph Kraus”

I went to hear Congressman Jim Jordan this morning in Norwalk. If you believe the GOP got the message the GOP voters in Virginia sent to GOP leadership last Tues, you are wrong. We learned that the GOP Country Club that caused the defeat of Cantor is now planning to elect Cantor’s clone, moderate Kevin McCarthy, who is more a RINO than Cantor.

Congressman Jordan is supporting Congressman Raoul Labrador from Idaho for Majority Leader. Labrador is a strong conservative & voted against Boehner for speaker in 2013. Congressman Jordan is also supporting Congressman Marlin Stutzman of Indiana for House Whip

Boehner has set the election for next Thursday June 19th. If we want to try and head off business-as-usual, it is suggested that we call Speaker Boehner’s office 202-225-6205 and tell him you want the above congressmen elected as your representative in GOP leadership. Please forward this to your social media outlets.

Regards, Ralph


Congressman Louie Gohmert also phoned in to the Glenn Beck Radio Show this morning and said essentially the same thing, which is that Speaker Boehner needs to be told to slow down on the election of the next majority leader. You can also write to the speaker here:
