Getting Ahead of Ourselves
Are Tennessee House Republicans jumping the gun?
I am becoming increasingly concerned with the jockeying for position within the House Republican Caucus. Outgoing Republican Leader Jason Mumpower warned his members that he sees a division becoming clear within GOP ranks over who the next Speaker will be. There can't be a Republican Speaker without a solid Republican majority in the House, and if Republicans do not concentrate every ounce of their energy on strengthening that majority, one of the three apparent Republican candidates for Speaker will be the next Minority Leader.
