Straus Loses Another Supporter: Laubenberg Pledges to Paxton
Quorum Report is reporting that Rep. Jodie Laubenberg has withdrawn her support from Speaker Straus and pledged to Rep. Paxton. Rep. Ken Paxton announced earlier today that he will no longer support Straus and instead, he will run for Texas Speaker of the House himself. She cites in her letter as a reason for the switch, that he constituents are asking her to support a conservative for Texas Speaker of the House. And everyone seems to know at this point, that the current Texas Speaker, Joe Straus, is not conservative.
