John Boehner: ‘Paul Ryan Would Make A Great Speaker’

Outgoing House Speaker John Boehner is giving Rep. Paul Ryan his blessing, after Ryan outlined what it would take for him to run for Speaker of the House.

“Listen, I think that Paul Ryan would make a great Speaker but this decision is up to the members,” Boehner told reporters during a press conference this morning.

Boehner added that he believed that Ryan’s list of demands to the conference and his speech was effective, in spite of the growing skepticism among members of the House Republican Freedom Caucus.

Ryan’s list of demands included a rule change surrounding the motion to vacate the chair, a threat that frequently threatened Boehner’s speakership.

He also appeared optimistic that Ryan would succeed.

“I think that Paul is going to get the support that he is looking for, I thought he laid out a very clear vision of how he would run the Speakership, and I thought the members responded very well to it,” he said.
