Boehner: Senate Majority Means Time to Start 'Implementing Solutions'


ouse Speaker John Boehner says Republicans are "humbled" by the results of the midterm elections. In a statement, he says it's "not a time for celebration."

Boehner says instead, it's time for government to start "implementing solutions to the challenges facing our country." He says those challenges begin with what he calls a "still-struggling economy."

The House speaker will find an even stronger GOP House majority in January, along with a Senate Republican majority for the first time in eight years.

Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who is now in line to be majority leader, says voters are "hungry for new leadership."
