Boehner Reaches Out to G.O.P. Governors

The presumptive House speaker, John A. Boehner of Ohio, wants to establish a partnership with Republican governors and state lawmakers to work toward stopping the expansion of federal power in Washington.

In a letter to the leader of the Republican Governor’s Association, Haley Barbour of Mississippi, Mr. Boehner said that the new Republican majority in the House, and gains among Republicans in the Senate, provide a rare chance to curb the federal government.
