Boehner says he's 'all in' to remain as speaker

Updated: Tuesday, June 24 2014, 12:26 PM EDT

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker John Boehner says 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.

Additional questions about his tenure have arisen as House Republicans overhauled much of their leadership team last week following the primary election defeat of Virginia GOP Rep. Eric Cantor, the majority leader.

But when a reporter asked Boehner Tuesday whether he will remain as speaker, he said he's told his colleagues he is all in.
