The Tea Party Leadership Fund will announce on Friday an effort it plans to undertake to search for a candidate to primary House Speaker John Boehner, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.

The group is funding a $25,000 ad campaign against Boehner and a petition drive at with a goal of collecting 1 million signatures by Jan. 31. Radio’s Rusty Humphries, a spokesman for the Tea Party Leadership Fund, is leading the group’s effort to find a candidate.

“John Boehner has declared war on conservatives demanding lower taxes and limited government,” Humphries said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News. “Today we declare war on him. We intend to send a message to his fellow 'Republicans In Name Only' that such ideologically bankrupt leadership must come to an end.”

The group’s release states it has polling that shows at least half of Republicans in Boehner’s Ohio district are willing to support a GOP candidate who is more conservative than the Speaker.

If the effort hopes to be successful, the group will have to move fast. The filing deadline for a candidate to enter the race to run against Boehner in the Ohio GOP primary is 4 p.m. on Feb. 5. The primary is on May 6.

This sure took a lot of careful planning, preparation, etc. Hurry up--anybody by Feb. 5th.

And a whopping $25,000. What an impressive warchest.

No Republican has voted for Obamacare.

What EXACTLY do they believe Boehner is able to accomplish, with just the House majority?

Exactly, precisely what did he fail to do? What acts are within the control of a mere House majority?

I sometimes think this movement is a trick by democrats, to motivate gullible, low information "conservatives" to dine on their own, instead of the far more challenging, costly and productive task of opposing.......democrats !!
