Texas Appears To Have A New State House Speaker.

 

Dade Phelan

The race to be the next Texas House Speaker is apparently over. Beaumont Republican State Rep. Dade Phelan (fee-lan) claims to have the votes to take the job. The speaker is elected by the vote of a majority of state representatives on day 1 of the next legislature in 2021, but at an Austin press conference Phelan said he has the support of a super majority of the GOP caucus. State Rep Trent Ashby says the race isn’t over and he’s still in it.
