WASHINGTON, July 31 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker John Boehner told fellow Republicans that he wants the House of Representatives to vote on Monday on a last-minute deal to raise the debt ceiling, a Republican lawmaker said on Sunday.

"The speaker wants us out of town by tomorrow, he wants this done," Representative Jack Kingston told Reuters after participating in a conference call with Boehner and other House Republicans. (Reporting by Andy Sullivan; editing by Christopher Wilson)
