Texas House Hold 'em

For a good summary of the status of the impending contest for Speaker of the Texas House of Represenatives, see here.

This promises to be a battle royale. The current Republican Speaker, Tom Craddick, tends to inspire both intense loyalty and opposition, both within and outside his own party. An attempted coup from within his party two years ago nearly resulted in fist fights on the House floor. The smart money is now saying that he will lose this year, but it is certain that he will not go down without a fight.

All of us who have an interest in legislation before the Texas legislature this year are anxious to get this resolved.
