Quorum Report: Bryan Hughes will run for speaker

By Comments

Couldn’t Hughes wait until the election was over before the speaker’s race began?

The July 31 runoffs now loom large, as they will be battles between the Straus- and anti-Straus factions of the Republican party in the House. The party is undergoing a purification, driven by Perry’s endorsements and alliances, with the aim of taking the party away from the members and handing it over to the interest groups–Texans for Lawsuit Reform; Empower Texans/Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, TPPF, the right to life organizations, the home schoolers, the tea parties. (I just wrote this, minutes ago, in a previous post from a few minutes ago, about a narrative that might emerge from this election; see “Endangered Species List”).
