Today’s entrant: Dan Gattis.
The Georgetown Republican is the twelfth candidate challenging Speaker Tom Craddick, a Midland Republican seeking a fourth term as House leader.
Gattis was one of Craddick’s lieutenants during the 2007 session but has been uncommitted since the November election.
Via BOR. Hard to see how this changes the existing dynamic of many anti-Craddicks but no emerging consensus on an alternative. Really, at this point you’d prefer to see the number of Speaker candidates shrink, not expand. Who knows what’s going on? Burka has more.
