GOP presidential hopefuls looking for an endorsement from House Speaker John Boehner are out of luck.
The Ohio Republican told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on her radio show Friday he was waiting until his party chooses a nominee to get involved in the presidential race.
When Ingraham asked Boehner if he thought the most conservative candidate should win the primary election, the speaker said he was leaving those kinds of decisions to GOP voters.
"I think I'll let Republican voters around the country choose who they think the best candidate is," Boehner said. "I'm focused on getting my House team re-elected. Whoever the nominee is, I'm going to be there to support them, and to move the country in a direction that we can our economy going again, and fix broken tax code, and fix our debt problem."
When confronted with polls showing Obama beating his Republican rivals in Boehner's home state of Ohio, Boehner said he wasn't concerned.
"Well see, the election is a year away, plenty of time to get our answer out there," Boehner said.
