FILE - In this Feb. 28, 2013 file photo, House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio pauses while meeting with reporters during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. The ups and downs Boehner in 2013 dramatize the difficulties of managing a narrow Republican majority in the House. Some associates and observers say the low point of Boehner’s year was almost a year ago, Jan. 3, 2013, the first day of the 113th Congress. With the Ohio Republican’s family watching from the House gallery, a dozen defiant GOP lawmakers refused to back his bid to be re-elected speaker. The mini-rebellion fell short, but it delivered an embarrassing rebuke from conservatives.   (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
