    Default Republican Speaker of Dem Controlled House

    it looks like the PA house of representatives might retain the current republican speaker even though the democrats have a 1 vote majority as one democrat is going to vote for the current (republican) speaker to keep the post.

    Looks like Perzel didn't get elected, but another R did. I suspect that this isn't the end of developments in the legislature. I suspect we may see a few of the moderate dems flip to the R side, I'd personally rather they switch to the L side, but I doubt that will happen.

    I heard the new guy is pro-gun. A nice break for us, if true, since he's in a position to decide which bills leave committee and which die on the vine, unsubmitted.

    I'm beginning to love partisan gridlock...

    Just beware. Dennie O'Brien is a decent fellow, but he has reigned in Democrat controlled Philadelphia for 30+ years now. One does not do that without making deals.

    If it came down to his vote to decide if Philly gets to control its own gun laws, I wouldnt place bets on our rights.

    Hopefully I'm way off base.
