Hannity: Every Republican Lawmaker Must Reconsider Boehner After Scalise Scandal
Hannity says Boehner needs to go after Scalise scandal.
Sean Hannity is calling on House Republicans to reconsider John Boehner as Speaker. Hannity is pushing for popular Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to run for the top spot in the House.
Breitbart reported, via Free Republic:
Fox News anchor Sean Hannity, also a nationally syndicated radio host, is tripling down on his calls to demand new blood in House GOP leadership.
In the wake of Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) rebuffing his call to run against Speaker John Boehner after the white supremacy scandal that has rocked Boehner’s ally, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Hannity is calling on every Republican member of the House of Representatives to reconsider whether Boehner is in fact an effective leader.
“Every Republican member needs to ask themselves if John Boehner is really the best person to lead the conservative movement at this important time in history,” Hannity said in an email to Breitbart News. “Are they voting for him as a leader or for the Committee assignments they have been promised? The American people expect and deserve bold and dynamic and inspiring leaders. The next 2 years are critical for the country.”
Hannity said that if Republicans return to conservative principles by rejecting Boehner and installing a replacement, they will be “rewarded” with political victories in 2016’s crucial presidential election.
“If Republicans return to conservative principles of balanced budgets, low taxes, secure borders, free market health care, and if they pursue energy independence with a vengeance they will be rewarded politically in 2016,” Hannity said. “And more importantly the country will [be] rewarded with jobs and prosperity.”
Hannity previously called Gowdy to challenge Boehner, but Gowdy’s office quickly disavowed any notions of such a move from the wildly popular South Carolina conservative in a statement from spokeswoman Amanda Duvall.
