Boehner needs to be voted out of the Speaker’s position. How does that happen?
Someone has to run against him. They take a vote at the beginning at the new congress for speaker. Boehner’s position is not guaranteed until he’s voted in. Someone, perhaps a Paul Ryan type guy puts his hat in, lobbies his colleagues for their vote. Then there’s a vote. It’s kind of like a homecoming queen or class president vote.
I don’t know how it is to kick a sitting speaker out. Perhaps someone can add that.
