Rubio Announces Boehner Resignation to Standing Ovation: ‘It’s Time to Turn the Page’

Friday in Washington, DC at the Family Research Council’s 10th annual Values Voter Summit, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination announced Speaker John Boehner’s resignation, which led to the crowd in attendance bursting into loud cheers and a standing ovation.

Rubio said, “Just a few minutes ago Speaker Boehner announced he will be resigning. [ cheers and applause ] And with all due respect to people that serve in government, it is important at this moment with respect to him and service that he’s provided to our country— it’s not about him or anybody else and I’m not here today to bash anyone. But the time has come to turn the page. The time has come to turn the page and allow a new generation of leadership in this country.”
