In Ohio, US House speaker hopeful sees 'big day'

John Boehner votes in West Chester John Boehner votes in West Chester

WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) - U.S. House Republican leader John Boehner sees a big day ahead for his party.

Boehner is in line to become speaker if Republicans gain a majority in the House, and he said Tuesday they have "a real opportunity" to do so.

He also called the election a chance for those unhappy with government spending, takeovers and bailouts to make their voices heard. Boehner spoke briefly with reporters after voting at a church polling station near his home in the northern Cincinnati suburb of West Chester.

A supporter of Democratic congressional nominee Justin Coussoule (KUH'-soo-lee) asked Boehner what he had done for his home district. Boehner replied that he had represented his constituents honestly.
