WASHINGTON – House re-elects John Boehner as speaker, gives embattled Republican another two-year term.

The Ohio lawmaker won a second, two-year term as leader with 220 votes, losing just a handful of votes in the Republican-controlled chamber.

The election of the speaker came as the House and Senate ushered in a new Congress on Thursday.
