I believe there is a republican caucus meeting this morning to discuss that. Unfortunately, I believe Straus has JUST enough republicans in his pocket to side with the democrats and retain his position. I hope I am wrong.
I saw some discussions about a "rule change" that would mean that just the majority party would vote for the speaker. That could actually mean that Strauss could be replaced. Not sure a rule change could happen though...
Careful what you wish for. We may not always be in the majority. I fear this with the simple majority vote for Supreme Court Justices now.
I'm actually not wishing one way or the other....just reporting what I saw fly by....I would, however, not mind if Strauss were replaced.
Jed Judson, seems to be gearing up for another try in his district, for those of you who live there. I wish I could help him out even those I live just outside of it.
