I came across this article this morning:
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle has regained the power and influence he had in 2007 before a 2010 Republican coup that stripped him of many responsibilities, political analysts and local legislators said.
For the upcoming General Assembly, Cagle is one of the leaders deciding committee assignments, along with new Senate Pro Tempore David Shafer, R-Duluth, and new Majority Leader Ronnie Chance, R-Tyrone.
Cagle was out and about at Wild Hog last night. The poli-sci professor in this article goes on to say:
Another advantage for Cagle may be his relationship with Sen. Jeff Mullis, R-Chickamauga, Bullock said. Mullis has been named one of Georgia Trend Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Georgians for four consecutive years.
Aren’t committee assignments supposed to come out today?
