Shortly after Boehner’s re-election Tuesday to the position of speaker of the House, Minority Leader Pelosi presented the gavel to him.
“This House will continue to be led by a proud son of Ohio and a happy fan of the Ohio State football team,” Pelosi said.
“Yes!” Boehner interjected.
“A man of abiding faith, great heart and deep dedication. John Boehner is truly a gentleman from Ohio,” Pelosi added.
Boehner received 216 votes in his bid to win a third term as speaker.
