On the Floor

I'm on the House floor between Reps. Campfield and Dunn, and I was essentially forced to come over here at 9:30am because the rumor spread around the War Memorial by 9:00am that the Capitol was already filling with people. I had barely finished breakfast when Ruth Adams, Frank Niceley's secretary, suggested that we head over to the Capitol immediately to insure our seat. We got on the House floor without a problem, but when I looked up to the balcony at 9:45, the gallery was already full. It is 11:00 now and the people are still coming in up there. It is said that someone brought four busloads of people from their district.

There is still some concern that Kent Williams may vote for Naifeh, largely because of the threat to remove him from the party if he votes Democratic for any Constitutional office. The theory goes that if he wants to vote for Sims or Morgan, why should he then not vote for Jimmy Naifeh, since either way he's out. Many members of the Caucus were at the celebration dinner last night at the City Club-Kent Williams was noticeably absent from a very Republican gathering.

Jason Mumpower still says he's "on top" of the Williams situation, and Williams was notably cheery when I saw him in the hall today. The GOP Caucus meets as we wait.

Seems to me the rest of the country could and ought to take a lesson from what Tennessee is doing. Why don't you America?

We are cursed by the Williams factor.

Mumpower was probably cheery because he just added a new comic book to his collection. This couldnt have happened to a better guy.

The Williams factor? What, pray tell, is that? Makes no sense to me.

Another Williams from East Tennessee who will be an independent very soon. Wonder if he likes Nascar?
