Labrador weighs in on Boehner

Shortly after 10:30 a.m. today, according to Eye on Boise, Congressman Raul Labrador issued this statement on the resignation announcement by House Speaker John Boehner:

“Though I differed with Speaker Boehner on the pace of reform, I respect and admire him. He served Ohio and the House with distinction and grace. I wish him the very best. As for succession, today is not the day for such talk. But I am committed to supporting leaders who will keep our promise to the American people to fight for real change in Washington.”

Question: What do you make of Labrador's role in this inside political coup?
