House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio meets with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 24, 2014. Boehner said he's "all in" to remain as House speaker in the new Congress that will meet next year. For months, some have questioned whether the Ohio Republican would remain in the House's No. 1 job after this Congress ends in January 2015. Boehner has been speaker since 2011. For much of that time, he's managed a fractious Republican majority that includes conservatives who at times have rebelled against his leadership. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
