Former Rep. Steve LaTourette Slams Republicans Who Didn't Support Boehner

Says it's not a good sign

|

One day out of office, former Rep. Steve LaTourette on Friday slammed GOP House members who didn't support John Boehner for speaker.

"I really wish these new folks well, but yesterday was not a good sign that that's going to happen," LaTourette said on CNN. "Twelve people, it was either nine or 12 who just left the reservation and don't vote for the speaker. That vote is a no-brainer. It's all about whether or not your party is going to control the agenda."
