Radio Iowa: King to vote for Lungren to lead GOP in US House

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

The Republicans in the U.S. House plan to meet tomorrow (Wednesday) to
elect their leaders. Congressman Steve King, a Republican from Kiron
in western Iowa. plans to vote for Dan Lungren, a California
congressman who is challenging Ohio Congressman John Boehner. Boehner
has been the House GOP floor leader since 2006. In early February of
that year then-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay resigned and Boehner
was selected to lead the Republicans as Majority Leader. The GOP lost
control of the House in the 2006 elections, but shortly afterwards
Boehner was re-elected to lead his fellow Republicans, as House
Minority Leader. "We've lost two elections in a row and we've lost 55
seats in the last 24 months and it's time to put a new face on our
leadership."
