WASHINGTON (AP) - In a stunning movie, House Speaker John Boehner informed Republicans that he would step down at the end of October.

Rep. John Mica said Friday that Boehner "just does not want to become the issue. Some people have tried to make him the issue both in Congress and outside."

Boehner took over the speakership in January 2011.
