Five for the Future
It never hurts to look around the corner… so here’s a bit of peering into the future. It’s assumed that Floor Leader Todd Richardson will ascend to the speaker’s office in January 2017. But who will follow him in 2019?
There will be greater clarity in the coming years, but right now the names that are mentioned are: Reps. Kevin Austin, Robert Cornejo, Elijah Haahr, Rocky Miller, and Caleb Rowden. Of these, Rowden and Haahr are seen as the favorites at this early date.
Of course the future will hold some twists and turns. Political fortunes can grow and abate; priorities can change. But that’s the best stab right now.
