Beth Harwell now must unite the House Republican Caucus
NASHVILLE-The votes have been tallied in today's meeting of the Tennessee House Republican Caucus, and the legislative arm of the GOP has chosen Beth Harwell as the Republican nominee for Speaker. Based on the sheer numbers of Republicans in the House, it seems a near certainty that Harwell will go on to be officially elected Speaker of the House on Tuesday, January 11th, 2011. The real challenge for House Republicans now is to move on from an unexpectedly divisive campaign for the Speakership and unite to act as the governing majority.
