Brave Congressmen Who Made Stand For Genuine Liberty Today and Forever

The Daily Caller Reports:

Twenty-five House Republicans publicly rebelled against John Boehner on Tuesday, voting for another candidate for speaker during Tuesday's public floor vote but ultimately failing to prevent the Ohio Republican from winning re-election to the leadership post.

While these conservatives didn't stop Boehner as they hoped, they will likely argue their votes sent a message of displeasure with the current GOP leadership.

Those that voted against Boehner on Tuesday:

1. Rep. Justin Amash
2. Rep. Brian Babin
3. Rep. Rod Blum
4. Rep. Dave Brat
5. Rep. Jim Bridenstine
6. Rep. Curt Clawson
7. Rep. Scott DesJarlais
8. Rep. Jeff Duncan
9. Rep. Scott Garrett
10. Rep. Chris Gibson
11. Rep. Louie Gohmert
12. Rep. Paul Gosar
13. Rep. Tim Huelskamp
14. Rep. Walter Jones
15. Rep. Steve King
16. Rep. Thomas Massie
17. Rep. Mark Meadows
18. Rep. Rich Nugent
19. Rep. Gary Palmer
20. Rep. Bill Posey
21. Rep. Scott Rigell
22. Rep. Marlin Stutzman
23. Rep. Randy Weber
24. Rep. Daniel Webster
25. Rep. Ted Yoho

CNN Reports:

"There's going to be a fight" in response to Boehner's acts of retribution, promised Rep. Louie Gohmert in the halls of the Capitol Tuesday.

Gohmert had offered himself up as an alternative to Boehner for speaker. But when pressed on details, he said only: "You don't win a fight by telling your game plan ahead of time."

Although the coup attempt managed to organize the greatest opposition to a speaker seen in more than 150 years, its failure underscored the problems plaguing the party's conservative wing.

Indeed, many conservatives are still claiming Tuesday as a victory, certain that it's not only wounded Boehner but will turn up the heat on conservatives who unexpectedly supported him to stand strong on their values and commitments to voters in the next fight.
