Are we coming to the end of Mike Turzai as House Speaker or David Reed as Majority Leader? Multiple sources are saying that the Republicans are in Caucus right now fighting over leadership roles.
There’s a contentious caucus meeting happening right now as we speak.
Mike Turzai wants David Reed out as Majority Leader and would like Bryan Cutler in that position instead and David Reed wants Mike Turzai out as House Speaker. This should come as no surprise as Reed forced a vote on Medical Marijuana two weeks ago in the House Rules Committee, which left Turzai leaving the caucus room in tears.
This is a wrench in the Pa Budget debate. Stay tuned.
