NPT Capitol: Straus claims majority support; pledge list includes El Paso House delegation

All five El Paso House members are on the pledge list released by Speaker Joe Straus today. Here’s the brief news release:

Just days after the end of the 81st Texas Legislative Session, Texas House Speaker Joe Straus announced he has support from the vast majority of House Members for his re-election as Speaker for a second term. “As of this morning we have received 98 signed pledge cards from colleagues reaffirming their commitment to re-elect me as their Speaker. I am humbled and honored to have received this overwhelming support. This is a clear indication that members of both parties can set aside their differences to work together to find solutions to critical issues facing our state. I look forward to building on this foundation and working with all of the members during the legislative interim.”
