Boehner Absolves Defectors in Attempt to Unify Caucus

The Hill: “Battered by division and defections, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is setting out to re-unify his conference and prove to Democrats in the White House and the Senate that he can command a governing majority of the House.”

“Boehner, who lost 12 of his members in a surprisingly hairy reelection vote, took the first steps in a closed-door conference meeting Friday morning. Boehner told lawmakers he would not seek to punish the Republicans who deserted him on the House floor Thursday.”

Said Boehner: “I’m not a retribution kind of guy. I don’t hold grudges.”
