Can I ask where you found that posted? Curious if there was a story to accompany it, that sort of thing.

I’ll just post a quote instead of the picture.

Here is part of the statement he released:

"Since Friday, I have had numerous conversations with Members who care deeply about the Texas House, and I respect the manner in which they have handled this entire situation. After much prayer, consultation, and thoughtful consideration with my family, it is clear that I can no longer seek re-election as State Representative of District 25, and subsequently, as Speaker of the House. I care deeply about this body and the work we have accomplished over the years, namely, the outstanding success we achieved in the 86th Legislature. My below colleagues have made clear that it is in the best interest of both myself and the House to move on, and I thank them for the respectful and thoughtful way in which they have convinced me to do so."

Hopefully, if the republicans keep a majority in the house, a better job of picking a conservative speaker that is actually interested in advancing conservative values.

More than just voting records and activist organizations' recommendations and focus in on the speaker candidates past and present associations, alliances and careers to determine where they really stand on issues.

Although this is fantastic news it really won’t matter if we get another RINO elected Speaker if the House.
