Chairman Bennett Praises New Members of Congress and Boehner's Re-election as Speaker

COLUMBUS, OH - Ohio Republican Chairman Bob Bennett congratulated Ohio's newest Republican Members of Congress David Joyce and Brad Wenstrup as they are sworn into the 113th Congress today and praised John Boehner's re-election as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives calling it another big step for Ohioans.

"Congressman Joyce and Congressman Wenstrup will show dedication in serving their respective districts as they have throughout their public service careers and we're proud to support them.

"Congressman John Boehner's re-election as Speaker is a distinct honor for all Ohioans as he continues the legacy set by fellow Ohio Congressman Nicholas Longworth who was speaker for the 69th, 70th and 71st Congress. Speaker Boehner will lead the 113th Congress with the same sincerity, conviction and commitment that he has shown in Congress for his district and for all Ohio."
