When asked about the current House leadership vacuum, staffers for congressman Justin Amash pointed The Daily Caller to his Twitter salute to outgoing Speaker John Boehner.

The brief statement is, “at this point, all we have to say on this matter,” Amash’s office told TheDC, yet they did not deny the possibility of the Michigan congressman running for the vacated speaker’s seat.

A Tea Party favorite, Amash voted against Boehner’s second term as speaker back in 2013, and in 2015, Amash expressed desire to elect a speaker who will, “promote fresh thinking and new priorities.” (RELATED: Gowdy ‘Not Interested’ In Becoming Speaker Of The House)
