Tom Bell, et al, had the fundraiser ($$) for the Speaker.
Here is what’s funny. I’ve examined our traffic for the last month and the 4 most popular reads on Peach Pundit are the ones about a challenge to the Speaker.
In fact, I know of two high profile GOP consultants who think the GOP in the House might be surprised this year as a result of the Speaker’s behavior.
Here’s what I think: The man most secure in his job in Georgia is Glenn Richardson and the man least secure in his job is David Ralston. Glenn is going no where and the opposition better come to terms with it.
The only way Glenn goes is if the GOP gets a tough series of losses in the House. And I don’t see that happening despite the speculation of some.
I also suspect the Speaker might just turn a corner in his relationship with the loyal in-house opposition this year, in which case he’d really be a formidable Speaker.
