Exclusive–Huelskamp: Conservatives May Rise up Against Boehner Pending Fiscal Cliff Outcome

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), a victim of Speaker John Boehner’s purge of conservatives from leadership positions in the House, said there’s definitely a possibility, depending on what happens during these fiscal cliff negotiations, that enough conservative members of the House rise up against Speaker Boehner.

“This is not about losing just four votes [from the members who were purged],” Huelskamp said. “He [Boehner] is worried about the 20 to 30 to 40 to 70 who voted against the debt deal, and is afraid that some of them may decide we want a conservative as Speaker.”

When asked if it’s a realistic possibility that Boehner could be unseated, Huelskamp replied: “Who knows? I’m still a freshman so I’m still trying to figure that out. But, who knows what may happen behind closed doors. Maybe they had a blowout in the Steering Committee meeting today?”
