Reports tonight say state representatives John Smithee, R-Amarillo, and Dan Gattis, R-Georgetown, have withdrawn their candidacies for speaker of the Texas House. That leaves Rep. Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, as the only remaining speaker candidate.
So what does Cathie Adams of Texas Eagle Forum have to say about the man (Straus) she has been attacking in e-mails to far-right activists over the past week? She just sent out a new e-mail:
Rep. John Smithee withdrew from the Speaker’s race late today. Rep. Joe Straus is expected to be the next Speaker of the Texas House.
I look forward to working with the new Speaker and each of YOU in the upcoming legislative session.
So she looks forward to working with a Republican speaker she spent the last week characterizing as a liberal, pro-abortion, anti-family leader of a Democratic coup? Yeah, well, good luck with that.
