Conservatives float alternative to Boehner

CNN Senior Congressional Producer Deirdre Walsh   

Washington (CNN) – Some conservatives unhappy with House Speaker John Boehner's leadership are looking for a replacement, and recent moves by Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling are fueling speculation he wants Boehner's job in the next Congress.

Hensarling, who was part of Boehner's leadership team two years ago but left to chair the House Financial Services Committee, gave an expansive speech last week hosted by Heritage Action for America, a group that frequently and publicly clashes with Boehner.

Thank goodness. It's Hensarling.

I feared that someone was about to try and wake Fred Thompson up.
