WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has re-elected embattled Republican John Boehner (BAY'-nur) speaker.

The Ohio lawmaker won a second, two-year term as leader with 220 votes, losing just a handful of votes in the Republican-controlled chamber.

The election of the speaker came as the House and Senate ushered in a new Congress Thursday.
