WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House has re-elected embattled Republican John Boehner 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.
