Rich Golick to run for House speaker pro tem

A couple last-minute notes on House leadership races to come:

– State Rep. Rich Golick (R-Smyrna) will tell his Republican colleagues tomorrow that he’s running for speaker pro tem, the No. 2 leadership spot in the House. He’s the former floor leader for Gov. Sonny Perdue.

– Someone has established a “Mike Coan for Georgia Speaker of the House” page on Facebook. Not sure whether this has been sanctioned by the Lawrenceville lawmaker.

Fresh names are emerging. The GOP just might have the fortitude to make a clean sweep of their current leadership after all. Why would they give a promotion someone who is already part of Richardson/Burkhalter/Keen regime (jan jones, larry oneal) anyway?

We don’t need that arrogant little pipsqueak especially since he is a VIP passenger on the Richardson/Burkhalter/Keen runaway train.
