Speaker Joe Straus Defections Continue: Rep. Randy Weber Withdraws His Support From Straus
From Rep. Randy Weber’s Facebook page: “Well, I have formally requested that Speaker Joe Straus take me off of his pledged list. My District has spoken & I have listened. Please pray that Texas will be strengthened and in GOD’s will, no matter who the Speaker is. We will be Stronger for it. rw”
Also, as of today, Texas House Republicans have a supermajority (101 of 150 seats) in the Texas House. Why? Because Rep. Aaron Pena and Rep. Alan Ritter switched parties, from Democrat to Republican. Details here- http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/tx/7338908.html
“Pena said Texas Democrats have strayed too far from his conservative views” according to a story on the Houston Chronicle’s website. We hope he’s ready to show his conservative side by supporting a conservative Speaker of the House.

Rep. John Zerwas will have to explain his support tonight for Speaker Joe Straus. Constituents in his district are not happy about this. They believe he should represent his district by following the overwhelming message that they want a conservative Texas Speaker of the House. http://instantnewskaty.com/2010/12/14/17985
