Despite efforts Wednesday to focus his final news conference before the August recess on GOP accomplishments in the 114th Congress, Speaker John A. Boehner found himself dedicating nearly half of his seven minutes of remarks to an effort by North Carolina Republican Mark Meadows to remove him as speaker. “This is one member, alright?” Boehner said, responding to questions about a possible divide in his conference. “I got broad support amongst my colleagues. And frankly, it’s not even deserving of a vote.”
