Rep. Gohmert Challenging Boehner as Speaker of the House

On Sunday, Rep. Louie Gohmert announced that he will challenge House Speaker John Boehner for Speaker of the House when Congress returns this week to Washington.  The vote will take place Tuesday, January 6.

In a Fox News report, Gohmert said, “We have heard from a lot of Republicans that said, ‘I would vote for somebody besides speaker Boehner.’ But nobody will put their name out there.  That changed yesterday with Ted Yoho.”

A year ago last January, I spoke to Rep. Gohmert at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention about the possibility of his becoming Speaker of the House. Here’s what he had to say then:
