John Boehner re-elected as speaker of House

WASHINGTON - The US House of Representatives on Tuesday re-elected Republican John Boehner to serve a third term as Speaker of the chamber.
Boehner won another two-year term as Republicans enjoy a stronger House majority and take control of the Senate as a result of November elections.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi was Boehner's main challenger for the top job of Speaker, but a handful of conservative Republicans voted for other candidates, leaving the outcome unclear until all votes were tallied.
