House Speaker John Boehner is running his first television ad in four years to rally support for other Republicans in Ohio, Politico reported.

"Republicans have a big opportunity in 2014, and the speaker wants to make the most of it," Cory Fritz, a spokesman for Boehner’s political operation, told Politico. "With no significant statewide primary to mobilize and engage voters in Ohio, we’re stepping up and doing our part to build a strong foundation for victory up and down the ticket in November."

Boehner faces three challengers, but is expected to win easily. He has served in the House for 24 years, and is seeking a 13th term despite rumors that he plans to retire soon. "Absolutely not true," Boehner told The Washington Post when asked if his purchase of a condo in Florida indicated he's about to leave Congress.

Boehner replaced Tom DeLay as the House majority leader in 2006, then served as the minority leader when Republicans lost the House later that year. He was elected speaker after the GOP took control of the House after the 2010 elections.

Boehner's new TV spot is airing in the Cincinnati and Dayton markets until April 16, according to Politico. It is his second notable video in a week, after he posted an Instagram video Saturday of himself mowing his lawn.
