WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Rice (SC-07) released the following statement regarding the re-election of Speaker of the House, John Boehner (OH-08):

“After a historic election, Republicans for the first time in eight years have a majority in both chambers of Congress.  We must use this opportunity to come together and show the country that Republicans are united.  With Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republicans can get our country back on the right track—one of limited government, lower taxes, and liberty for all.”
