The 2015 House election for Speaker was historic. It was the first since 1925* in which more than one declared candidate from the same party received votes. [mc_name name=’Rep. John Boehner (ROH)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’B000589′ ] received 216 votes, other Republicans (including declared candidates [mc_name name=’Rep. Daniel Webster (RFL)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’W000806′ ], [mc_name name=’Rep. Louie Gohmert (RTX)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’G000552′ ], and [mc_name name=’Rep. Ted Yoho (RFL)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’Y000065′ ]) received 24. [mc_name name=’Rep. Nancy Pelosi (DCA)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’P000197′ ] got 164 votes, other Democrats 2, and Colin Powell one.
That was a huge improvement over the disappointing results in the 2013 vote of the #FireBoehner movement. It’s up to the voters to demand more progress. Who did your member vote for?
A run for Congress is no small thing, and a run for Congress against an incumbent is even tougher. There are resources to help a wouldbe candidate ([mc_name name=’Rep. Jim Bridenstine (ROK)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’B001283′ ] himself got American Majority training, an example of a group that does good work and has presented at RedState Gatherings in the past), but it’s better to plan sooner than later.
Now is the time to start finding out who is running for Congress, in other words. Now is also the time to know if your member of Congress deserves to get a conservative challenger. All the Democrats do, of course. Of the Republicans, here’s some help.
This is a table of which Republicans voted for whom, conveniently highlighted to separate the Boehner voters, the nonBoehner voters, and the nonvoters.

The establishment is looking down this list, finding the blue names, and getting challengers for them. Are you fighting back?
* According to the Congressional Research Service, in 1925 Henry Cooper, Republican of Wisconsin, contested against elected Speaker Nicholas Longworth. This was Republican infighting that led to the creation of the Progressive Party.
