The Speaker’s race: will it be over tonight?

You may remember at the end of the 2007 legislative session, Speaker Tom Craddick was challenged – some even asked for him to step down as Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives. He declined, and the ensuing battle to unseat him was unsuccessful.

Ever since then pundits have speculated about whether the 2009 legislative session would also feature Craddick as House speaker. Although the Speaker election is not held until the first day of the session – January 13, 2009 – and only House members get to vote, some members of the press believe the race may very well be decided today at the polls.
