Boehner Courts Tea Party Members

Thursday, 11 Nov 2010 04:36 PM

Presumptive House Speaker John Boehner and other members of the House Republican leadership are doing their best to draw in tea party-backed freshmen. For example, the leaders announced they will add a leadership position for a freshman member, citing ascendant tea party-backed Reps.-elect Kristi Noem of South Dakota and South Carolina’s Tim Scott as possibilities, Politico reports.

Boehner, tea party, Noem, Tim Scott“By creating new leadership and committee posts, floating tea party names for those positions and supporting conservative reformers for exclusive committee chairmanships, Republican leaders are signaling that they’re eager to pacify the new wave of anti-Washington politicians and to diminish the gap between establishment members and their upstart colleagues,” the news service states.

And they made sure to draw tea party-backed freshmen’s support for Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling as GOP conference chairman over Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann.
