Press Release

Washington - Congressman Garret Graves (R – South Louisiana) today released the following statement after House Speaker John Boehner announced he would retire at the end of October.
“Speaker of the House is an incredibly challenging job, particularly in today's environment of diverse political ideologies,” said Graves.  “I want to thank John Boehner for his service and wish him the best of luck as he moves to the next chapter of his life. The voters were loud and clear in the 2014 elections and that message remains clear today. Our country is headed in the wrong direction, and they won't settle for anything short of change. We have the opportunity to get the right leadership team in place to achieve the change voters demand and deserve. Now is the time to move forward - toward the America we want for our children and grandchildren.”
