Speaker Boehner Statement on the Results of the 2012 Presidential Election

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) issued the following statement regarding the results of the 2012 presidential election:

“The American people re-elected the president, and re-elected our majority in the House.  If there is a mandate, it is a mandate for both parties to find common ground and take steps together to help our economy grow and create jobs, which is critical to solving our debt.  I offer sincere congratulations to President and Mrs. Obama and to Vice President and Dr. Biden.  I wish Mitt, Ann, Paul, Janna and their families well, and thank them for having carried the banner of our party and our principles with strength, grace, and courage.”
