Gardner Statement on Boehner Resignation

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement today following the announcement that Speaker of the House John Boehner will resign his seat in Congress: 

“John Boehner is a devoted family man, an exceptionally talented public servant, and one of the proudest Americans I know. One of twelve children, he went from sweeping the floors at his father’s Cincinnati bar to walking the halls of the Capitol as the highest ranking official in Congress.  

“He has lived the American dream, and been an inspiration to many, including myself. From my time in the House to the current day, I am proud to consider John Boehner a friend and ally. I will miss his steady leadership — our country is better off for his service.”
