House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was nominated for another term by sometime-rival Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.). Boehner in turn nominated Cantor.
As GOP leader, Boehner will formally get a second term as Speaker in January.
Under GOP rules, the Speaker does not have to be a sitting member of Congress. The Constitution is silent on the question.
