House Republicans will elect their new leaders on Oct. 8, outgoing Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday. Boehner said in a statement that “a large majority of our members have made clear they want these elections held next week.” Some members, most of them hard-line conservatives, have pushed to delay the elections toward the end of the month, when Boehner is set to leave the speakers’s chair.
