House Speaker John A. Boehner shrugged off an attempted conservative coup Wednesday, calling it “no big deal,” but the rebellion threatens to drown out Republicans’ message during Congress‘ upcoming summer vacation and could stymy GOP plans for a big finish for 2015.

Mr. Boehner insisted that his job wasn’t in jeopardy, but he refused to test his support among rank-and-file Republicans by allowing a vote on the motion to oust him, or “vacate the chair,” that Rep. Mark Meadows unexpectedly sprang on fellow Republicans and GOP leaders a day before the House adjourned for a summer recess.
