US House Speaker John Boehner resigns

US House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner,
who has struggled with repeated rebellions from the
conservative wing of his Republican Party, plans to
resign from the House at the end of October.
The Ohio lawmaker, 65, stunned Republican House
members at a morning meeting with the announcement
he will step down from the speakership, the top job in
the 435-seat chamber, and resign his seat in Congress
effective on Oct. 30.
