WASHINGTON, D.C. – Former U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on Warren Davidson’s victory today in the special election for Ohio’s 8th Congressional District seat:

 “I congratulate Warren Davidson on his election to the U.S. House.  As I said months ago after Warren’s victory in the GOP primary, the voters of the 8th District have chosen someone who can be counted on to continue the fight for a smaller, less costly, more accountable federal government.  I know Warren will serve the people of the 8th District honorably, as he served our country honorably in the U.S. Army.  Debbie and I extend our sincere congratulations to him and Lisa, and wish them the very best.”

 Boehner represented the 8th District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 to 2015, serving as House Speaker from 2011 to 2015.
