Huelskamp Says He May Not Voter for Boehner to be Re-elected As Speaker

The New York Times is reporting conservative Kansas Congressman Tim Huelskamp may show his unhappiness over being kicked off two key House Committees by not voting for House Speaker John Boehner’s re-election as Speaker.
Huelskamp, a west Kansas farmer, was booted from the House Agriculture Committee and the powerful House Budget Committee last week.
He says he is being punished for not voting with his fellow Republicans in Leadership often enough.
“The vast majority of his district wants him ( Huelskamp) to oppose Mr. Boehner’s re-election” according to the Times.
The larger thrust of the report dealt with the possibility the Speaker is struggling to keep his most conservative members in line as the fiscal cliff negotiations continue.
Huelskamp is one of four conservative House Members who were removes from some of their committee posts last week.
