Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) has spent the last few months seeking to dispel doubts that hell run for Speaker again in 2015. But he hasnt convinced at least a few of his members that he plans to stick around.
Conservative Reps. Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho) and Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) told reporters Tuesday that they didnt believe Boehner would seek another term after the November midterm elections.
I dont think he runs, Labrador said at an event held in conjunction with the Heritage Foundation.
I dont think hes going to come back as Speaker either, Salmon added.
The conservatives were asked to respond to a report that Boehner were hatching a plan to punish members who refused to vote for him on the floor in January, two years after a group of conservatives failed in their bid to deny him the 218 votes he needed to win a second term as Speaker. Labrador was one of the dozen members who didnt vote for Boehner, while Salmon did.
I think that would be the most bone-headed move, Salmon said of any plan to punish Republicans who denied Boehner their vote. Even making that kind of threat is a bone-headed move.
Earlier this year, another Republican who supported Boehner in 2013, Rep. Mo Brooks (Ala.) told The Hill he did not think he would run again.
Boehner has said he would seek another term and has argued that his support within the Republican conference is as strong as it has ever been, despite the difficulties the leadership has had in winning unified support for its priorities.

Duh! No more Speaker Bonehead.
Allen West for Speaker.
The GOP-E has had control of the Nations purse strings for over 4 years.
Boehner has been in control as Speaker of the House for over 4 years.
Obama has thus been at the mercy of Boehner and the GOP-E for over 4 years.
Obama thus could not have been as successful as he has been without the full cooperation of the GOP-E and ESPECIALLY Speaker Boehner, Leader Cantor, Whip McCarthy, Economist Ryan, Chairman Mike Rogers, Chairman Issa and loose cannon Peter King of NY.
As long as the Member Republicans in the US House choose to keep in place the above Leadership team, Obama will be able to continue his personal race to the bottom.
Obama, Reid, Holder and Pelosi are just doing what they have been raised up to do: Destroy America, ASAP. They are Public Enemy Number One.
Those who refuse to oppose the destruction of our Republic are Public Enemy Number Two.
BTW, when have - - conservatives - - - , Boehner, Cantor, or Ryan EVER Conserved anything when doing battle with Obama, Reid, Holder or Pelosi? Hmmmmmmmmm?
The only thing that matters in politics is to stay on offense.
The GOP-E has perfected the art of always staying on defense.
Thus, the GOP-E will continue to lose elections by wide margins.
R Sc Rep. Trey Gowdy is an exception to the shunning of Offense by the GOP-E.
Gowdy has the required fire-in-the-belly to attack, Attack, ATTACK!
I stand with Gowdy, Lee and Cruz, who so far have told the truth, and then refused to apologize for telling the TRUTH.
The Republican Party has come a long ways since 2012.
In 2012, then GOP-E candidate Romneycare Romney published a book entitled No Apologies.
Also in 2012 Romneycare Romney told the truth about the 47 % who pay no personal FI Taxes, and thus would not vote for him.
Two weeks later, Romney apologized, saying I was completely wrong.
The GOP-E lost the support of Conservatives when GHW Bush lied to us about Read my lips, NO NEW TAXES!
The GOP-E lost the support of the Hold-your-nose-when-you-vote segment in 2008 by voting for McCain.
The GOP-E revealed itself to be a dedicated loser when they chose to run Romneycare Romney against Obamacare Obama.
Now we have Scandal Coverup Artist Sobber Boehner caving in to Obama, Reid, Holder and Pelosi on a weekly basis.
We need to march into the US House of Representatives and escort out the above mentioned Leaders for a TEA Party reception on the Lawn of the US House.
I have the tar, yall bring the feathers!
Boner needs to go.
