What does Speaker Boehner think about the President mentioning the bridge near his district?

Below is from my FNC colleague Chad Pergram:

Urgent: Boehner spox on POTUS mentioning key bridge near his district for repair

From Brittany Bramell, spokeswoman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Bridge runs from Cincinnati to Northern Kentucky.


“Speaker Boehner believes the Brent Spence Bridge is important infrastructure to the state and national economy, and is an advocate of repairing and eventually replacing the bridge. He believes properly vetted funding mechanisms, rather than earmarks, are necessary to complete the project.”
