Tom Craddick, the Texas speaker of the House of Representatives, is getting a lot of heat as other reps have decided to take his job.
Being a hardline conservative ain't what it used to be.
But I was glad to see this note today from out own right winger Rep. Phil King: "I have no intention of running for speaker on Jan. 9. Additionally, I would like to publicly reaffirm my strong commitment to Tom Craddick." Source here and here.
Until, of course, he loses the speakership.
