Re: CONGRESS RE-ELECTS JOHN BOEHNER AS HOUSE SPEAKER!!!
The 113th Congress convened for the first time Thursday, and re-elected John Boehner as House Speaker, putting a rest to rumors that the Ohio Republican's position was in jeopardy.

But Boehner begins the new session of Congress more vulnerable than he has been at any other point in his speakership.

Some GOP sources on the Hill had even speculated that there could be be a rare second ballot for Speaker, in the event that 16 conservative Republicans vote against Boehner.

Here's our updates from the vote:

UPDATE 1:

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), one of the four congressmen "purged" by Boehner, just voted for Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) as speaker.

UPDATE 2:

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) just voted for Cantor.

UPDATE 3:

Tea Party favorite Allen West, who lost his reelection to Congress, just got a vote for Speaker.

UPDATE 4:

Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) votes for Colin Powell. That's the second Democrat to defect from Pelosi.

UPDATE 5:

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) gives Allen West his second vote for speaker. Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) abstained.

UPDATE 6:

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), another purged congressman, votes for Rep. Jim Jordan, the head of the Republican Study Committee.

UPDATE 7:

Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) votes for David Jones, the former GAO comptroller. Yes, that's pretty random.

UPDATE 8:

Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) abstains. That's four Republican abstentions and six defections from Boehner.

UPDATE 9:

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) votes Amash for Speaker. Both Massie and Amash are acolytes of retired Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX).

Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC) a Blue Dog Democrat, defected from Pelosi.

UPDATE 9:

There are now 16 Republican votes against Boehner — 8 defections and 8 abstentions. Absentions do not necessarily hurt Boehner however — the speaker needs an absolute majority of votes cast.

UPDATE 10:

Rep. Ted Yoho, a freshman Republican from Florida, votes Cantor for Speaker.

UPDATE 11:

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MI), who abstained from voting earlier, votes for Boehner.

He might as well join the Democratic party. He votes with them most of the time. He's too buddy buddy with Obama. He didn't do a thing to support Romney...in my opinion they should of gotten rid of him.

This is the guy who will lead the Republicans to Party suicide. He wants amnesty for illegal aliens. If that passes, it will give us basically one-party rule.
