Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement on the retirement of Speaker of the House John Boehner:

 Congressman Sensenbrenner: “As Speaker of the House, John Boehner led the Republican Party to its largest majorities since the 1920s, and in a contentious political atmosphere where it’s nearly impossible to achieve anything, he has done an exceptional job building relationships, bridging gaps, and passing meaningful and necessary legislation. Speaker Boehner’s congressional career has been one of dedicated service on behalf of his district, his party, and the American people, and he will be greatly missed. I thank him for his constant commitment to this nation and wish him well in his retirement.”
