Conservative wins Boehner House seat
Conservative businessman Warren Davidson won the special election on Tuesday to fill former Speaker John Boehner’s vacant House seat in Ohio.
Davidson prevailed in a crowded 15-way GOP primary in March and immediately became the expected successor in the heavily Republican district.
His victory in Tuesday’s special election means he will succeed Boehner, who served in the seat for a a quarter-century.
Davidson will likely be sworn in as the House’s newest member within days.
The seat has been vacant since Boehner resigned from Congress at the end of October. Davidson’s election victory will bring the total size of the House GOP conference to 247 members.
