But he changed his plans after former congressman, Eric Cantor, then Boehner’s deputy, lost in a primary in one of the biggest upsets of the 2014 cycle. That changed Boehner’s calculation.Boehner has served as speaker since the Republicans took control of the House of Representatives following the 2010 midterm elections.
