Submission + - Speaker of the House Boehner announces resignation (washingtonpost.com)

halfEvilTech writes: House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), faced with a constant conservative rebellion, told Republicans Friday morning that he will resign at the end of October, according to aides and lawmakers in a closed-door meeting.

The resignation will end a nearly five-year reign as speaker, allowing House Republicans to approve a short-term government funding bill that will avert a shutdown of federal agencies. Boehner’s hold on the speaker’s gavel had grown increasingly unsteady amid threats from more than 30 Republicans that they would force a no-confidence vote in his speaker’s position, which would have forced him to rely on Democratic votes in order to remain in charge. Several GOP members told The Washington Post that Boehner would step down from Congress Oct. 31.

Except that the Minneapolis metro area is the 16th largest metropolitan area by population in the US. So I would say a fair number of people live there. Now if you move say more than 30 miles outside the metro, the populations drop off fast.

There are a few exceptions of course like Rochester which is home to the famed Mayo Clinic.
