John Boehner, The president called Barack Obama the next president of the House – Rep. John Boehner, of Ohio – on Tuesday night after results of the midterm elections gave control of the Republican majority in the chamber from the following year.
The White House said Obama also called on two senior House Democrats – outgoing, Nancy Pelosi of California and outgoing Majority Leader Steny Hoyer – and the Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. While Republicans won a majority in the House, Democrats maintained their majority in the Senate, although it will be much closer than the current 59-41 advantage.
In his talks with Boehner and McConnell, Obama told the two that I wanted to work on them and the Republicans “to find common ground, move the country forward and do things for the American people,” the statement from the House White.
Team Boehner issued a statement on Obama’s call, saying the two had a “brief conversation, but nice.”
“They discussed working together to focus on the priorities of the American people that Boehner has been identified as creating jobs and reducing spending,” Boehner said the statement.
“That’s what they expect,” Boehner was quoted telling Obama in the call, the statement said.
Earlier, Boehner told a victory rally that “it is clear that the real winners tonight are, and the American people.”
“With their voices, the American people are demanding a new way forward in Washington,” Boehner said, calling the conservative policies favored by the tea party to reduce spending and reduce the size of government.
Before the election, Boehner criticized Obama for saying recently that “this is not the time for compromise” if the Republicans win control of the House.
