WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, CA) issued the following statement on Speaker Boehner’s announcement that he will be resigning from Congress:
“Speaker Boehner’s resignation is a significant loss for the House of Representatives and for America. For five years, he has had a difficult task leading a fractured Republican caucus.
