J.D. Winteregg got the endorsement of the Tea Party Leadership Fund in February for his primary challenge to House Speaker John Boehner in Ohio’s 8th District. But clearly, he wants to give his candidacy a little something extra to cut himself out from the herd.
You’ll either love it or hate it, I think. It is a risk, but I think it works. Pretty funny. The warning about a “Boehner lasting longer than 23 years” will stand the test.
Winteregg isn’t Boehner’s only challenger this year. Fellow Republicans Matthew Ashworth and Eric Gurr have also mounted campaigns. None of the three is given much of a chance to topple Boehner. He’ll have a Democratic opponent, and is expected to face the Constitution Party’s James Condit again, in November. Condit wasn’t a factor in 2012, drawing fewer than 2,000 votes in a contest in which Boehner bested his Democratic opponent by more than 57,000 votes.
