The new Congress gets sworn in Tuesday and some Republicans want a new House Speaker.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

Some staunch conservatives want John Boehner to lose his gavel. Texas Republican Louie Gohmert says he's running for House Speaker and Florida Republican Ted Yoho has also put his name out there.

(Yoho) "We lack a leadership and we lack vision of where the country is going. And I hear it from members. It's not just me feeling this. I hear it over and over again that we need new leadership."

Representatives Paul Gosar, Steve King and Dave Brat made all public statements of their commitments to vote for new leadership and more are expected to join them, but it's not expected there will be enough votes to oust Speaker Boehner.
