There will be a rally on Monday, January 10th, at 12:30 p.m. at the north side of the Capitol to ask for “no” vote on Joe Straus for Speaker of the House and a “yes” vote for a true conservative for Speaker of the House. Please be respectful and courteous to House members and their staff. Your message will be more effective if you stick to this approach.
