Rep. Louie Gohmert said Sunday morning that he will challenge John Boehner for the post of House speaker.

Mr. Gohmert, Texas Republican, told Fox News that many Republicans have said they would vote for someone other than Mr. Boehner but that few alternatives have emerged. Among them is Rep. Ted Yoho, Florida Republican.

“Ted is a good man for whom I could vote, but I have heard from many supporters and also friends in Congress who have urged me to put forward my name for speaker as well to increase our chances of change. That is why I am
also offering my name as a candidate for speaker,” the Daily
Caller quoted
Mr. Gohmert as saying.
