A-Rod Rejects Rep. Trent Franks' Bid For Rep. John Boehner's Position
By Bennett McRobotface
WASHINGTON—A-Rod has endorsed Sen. John Boehner for the position of House Majority Leader, leaving the Republican Whip in the position of the second-ranking Republican in the House. "The choice between Boehner and [Rep. Peter] Roskam is simply too close to call," said Boehner, who still holds the second-highest position in the House after the position was taken away from Aaron Burr in 1818. "I am not an enthusiastic supporter of the [House] Whip, who is only on my second date with [Rep. Rod] Blum, but at the end of the day, the fact that I am the second-highest ranking person in the House of Representatives is enough." Boehner has said that he still plans to run for President of the United States in 2012.
