From Ohio Tea Party Patriots Coordinator, Ralph King:
As many of you know Speaker John Boehner is resigning. Make no mistake: Speaker Boehner is resigning because of your hard work!
Here at Tea Party Patriots, we could not be more proud of this accomplishment. And as a Tea Party Patriots supporter, you should feel proud, too!
Tea Party Patriots were the first grassroots organization in the country to call for John Boehner's firing all the way back in 2012.
I remember the initials call(s) in late 2011 when fellow Tea Party Patriots State Coordinator for Ohio, Marianne Gasiecki and I (Ralph King) spoke with Jenny Beth Martin about starting the effort of getting rid Speaker Boehner.
With your help, we bombarded Congress with petitions calling for his ouster gathered through our #FireTheSpeaker campaign. We pressured members of Congress and we hounded him in the press.
Replacing Speaker Boehner is going to be very fluid and the selection process is very inside politics with many different scenarios.
Without getting caught up in all the scenarios at this time, we want to focus on what we can do immediately to make a difference in the selection process. This first part is critical:
First - please contact the GOP members of Congress and share your feelings with them on what you are looking for in the next Speaker.
Second - continuing the efforts used to force Speaker Boehner to resign - we will now turn these efforts towards Mitch McConnell!
