Skip to comments.TEA PARTY ACTIVIST LAUNCHES PRIMARY CHALLENGE TO BOEHNER
Posted on 10/02/2013 9:41:56 AM PDT by dalight
As Speaker John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio) struggles with the budget crisis, a Troy, Ohio schoolteacher and Tea Party activist announced Sept. 30 he will challenge Boehner in the 2014 GOP primary.
Joseph D. J.D. Winteregg, who is a founder of the Ohio Accountability Project, a grassroots organization in Ohio-8, a congressional district bordering Indiana, said he is motivated by the gulf between the interests and values of the district and Boehner.

I’m a former Buckeye..
wish I was still there...
It is time for a new breed of leaders...not airheads..but some wise, caring, conservative, intelligent people...Boehner just doesn’t fit the mix any longer..
Do we know ANYTHING about this guy? Do we want to elect another bonehead before we have even vetted him?
I'm not giving ANY money to ANYBODY unless they can prove they aren't another RINO or COMMIE.
I border his district....I have contemplated moving the 10’s of miles necessary to be in his district.
I’m Ohio born
and Ohio bred
and when I’m gone
I’ll be Ohio dead
that is so sad to read..
fear for this Nations future..
money talks..the GOP will never see another nickle from me, I never gave much...but fifty bucks a couple times a year...never again...
L O L...
WAS A BUCKEYE FOR 52 YEARS..
BORN IN PA.
WILL PASS IN PA.
BUT WHEN I PASS I’LL KEEP MY EYE OUT FOR YOU BUCKEYES..
I’m in Indiana now, and will likely be planted here, LOL.
The rhyme was just something I remembered from my youth.
Good! Boehner needs to GO
You may want to see about sending him new voters instead of money. Withas many times as with voters in his district sent him back to DC, there may have been too much inbreeding and heavy metal poisoning there for any amount of money to overcome.
Doc Thompson interviews this guy extensively and this is linked in the article. He is bright, committed, and willing to stand up and fight.
I know he is active in the Cincinnati Tea Party and the Fredrick Douglass Republican movement.
What I don’t know is a link to his Campaign page. I will reach out and see if this is available yet. He just announced September 30th.
I’ve heard Doc sub in for Glenn and he is funny yet very smart and would be a great guy to replace Sean hannity on the radio.
Almost 4 years of failure to defund Obamacare is proof enough that Boehner has been a failure as the Speaker of the House.
Boehner skated by during this battle ONLY because Reid wanted to shutdown the Government, and couldnt care less about taking Boehner to the cleaners, as usual. Thank you, Senator Reid.
The next battle is what Reid is preparing for: Crushing all Republican opposition to a large increase in the Federal Budget.
Reids plan is to move quickly, (Obama is scandal ridden, and has but 3 years left if he is not Impeached), to enshrine Obamacare as a single payer, Federal Insurance system.
Then Federal Obamacare Insurance premiums can be raised by the IRS anytime the Democrats need to extract more money from the taxpayers.
Thus, Congress would not be involved in this tax money raising scheme.
As for the Republicans, Reid is unconcerned about them, as he has always been able to beat them EVERY TIME.
Well, every time that Boehner has been Speaker of the House.
After nearly 5 years on the job, Sobber of the House Boehner still hasnt figured out that Reid and Obama are permanently emotionally stunted at the 2 to 4 year old, temper tantrum level.
Boehner must be the most stupid man in our sorry Federal Government.
Boehner was led kicking and screaming to not cave-in to Reid. That is to his credit, but just barely.
Boehner was waaaaaaaaaay to timid with 2 year old Reid, and damn near gave up on staying on offense by continually trying to cave in to 2 year old Reid.
Thankfully, Reid wanted this shutdown, convinced Obama to want it too, and avoided the temptation to take Boehner to the cleaners again. Thank you Senator Reid!
Boehner has no ideas left now so he must be replaced ASAP.
This First Reid Shutdown is a blessing in disgust.
Ignore the slings and arrows that the fans of Obamanation hurl at us.
They enjoy making noise and Federal messes, and they are good at it.
We Conservative Republicans have the responsibility of adult leadership to the 53 % of the voters who still pay their Federal Income Taxes. We have a lot of work to do!
The House needs to get rid of Boehner, replace him with a fighter, say Newt or Allen West (the House rules allow members to choose anyone, even non-members to be Speaker).
Then the new Speaker needs to appoint 3 Special Prosecuters : 1.) Benghazi; 2.) IRS; 3.) NSA.
This is a perfect time to clean up the mess that Obama, Reid and Pelosi have made, abolish Obamacare, and start to wean Americans off of the Federal Welfare teat.
Let the fans of Obamanation scream and holler, for that is what they have been doing for the last 5 years. Let them have their brand of hate-filled fun. We have work to do.
It is time for the Republican adults to lead the juvenile RINOs to clean up the dung heap that is truly an Obamanation.
Sometimes one has to work with the crew that one is saddled with.
Damn the Democrats! Full speed ahead!
They said that about Ted Cruz going up against Dewhurst here in TX. True Boner is speaker but never say never..
I’m surprised it took this long.
humm never heard that one in my youth..
but I do remember repeating something about ‘out behind the barn’ while in 4th grade (heard it from my older brother, and I had to repeat it!!!) and mom had to come to school to get me out of trouble..
but really I was a good kid!!! as i lol
Defeatist attitude, bend over and take it like a homo. I would like to send this post to Davy Dew hurst and let him know it was all a mistake.
Howdy freaken Doodie would be better than this pos Boehner.
You don’t have to live there,
Just show up in busses and register on election day and vote often just like obammy’s people
I appreciate the dialogue here—I’m looking forward to earning your support! The website for my campaign is jdwinteregg.com.
In the end, it isn't how much money you've got. It's who has more votes.
Grassroots folks, led by Winteregg and others, have collected up lots and lots of supporters already. They've been at it for many months.
