Senator Durbin Statement on Resignation of Speaker Boehner

EAST ST LOUIS—(ENEWSPF)—September 25, 2015. U.S. Senate Assistant Democratic Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement regarding Speaker John Boehner’s announcement that he will resign from Congress at the end of October:   

I served with John Boehner in the House and worked with him as a Senator. Despite our differences, I applaud his commitment to our nation and a life of public service. The chaos in the House Republican Conference, the palace intrigue, and the extremism of some of his members have resulted in the House’s failure to address basic issues, and now in the Speaker’s resignation. John Boehner tried to keep his conference in the mainstream, and his departure raises questions about the future of a party that thinks Boehner is not radical enough to lead the House and that Donald Trump is the right man to be President.
