Many of the votes for GOP candidates apart from BoehnerJohn BoehnerDem drops out of race for Boehner's old seat Conservative allies on opposite sides in GOP primary fight Clinton maps out first 100 days MORE drew murmurs and sometimes even outright laughter in the House chamber. The votes for Paul and Sessions drew the most derision from fellow lawmakers.
Most of the lawmakers who voted against Boehner are hard-line conservatives who particularly opposed the GOP leadership's handling of the government-wide spending bill last month. Many conservatives had urged leadership to defund President Obama's executive action to shield illegal immigrants from deportation. But the "cromnibus" spending package didn't include such a provision.
Many lawmakers were absent from the vote due to former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo's (D) funeral in New York and snow in Washington, D.C. Rep.

On the Democratic side, only four lawmakers voted for candidates aside from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) voted for former Secretary of State Colin Powell, while Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) voted for civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.). And Rep. Gwen Graham (D-Fla.), who stated she wouldn't support Pelosi on the campaign trail, voted for Cooper.
