      House Republican upheaval?

      Nov 26, 2005
      by Robert Novak

      WASHINGTON -- There is no doubt Rep. John Boehner of
      Ohio is quietly enlisting support from fellow House
      Republicans to elect him as majority leader in
      January. The question is whether Rep. Tom Reynolds of
      New York also is campaigning to be majority whip.

      Reports of a Boehner-Reynolds ticket have circulated
      in Washington, but Reynolds vigorously denies it. If
      he does run for whip, Reynolds would be accused of
      cutting and running from his duties as House
      Republican campaign chairman because of the difficult
      2006 midterm election ahead.

      A special election in January would mean House
      Republicans have given up on Tom DeLay getting rid of
      his criminal indictment in Texas in time to resume the
      majority leader's chair in this session of Congress.
      Majority Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri has been acting
      leader.
