House Speaker mixes birthday with Turkey Day

WE HEAR: Rep. John Boehner celebrated Thanksgiving a little early this year. 

 Although the Ohio Republican turned 62 on Nov. 17, a week before the holiday, he marked the milestone with a Thanksgiving-themed lunch with his staff. 

The early Turkey Day has become a tradition for the Speaker of the House.

 No word on whether Boehner has any birthday leftovers for the real deal this Thursday.
