What Louie Gohmert's last minute run means for Scott Turner


"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Proverbs 29:2

Louie Gohmert's last minute challenge to will end in one of three ways, which have have the following impact in Scott Turner's race:
  1. Gohmert wins, thus proving it's possible (and making any Republicans who vote for Straus look really, REALLY bad).
  2. Gohmert extracts meaningful concessions, thus proving it's possible to extract concessions.
  3. Republicans stiff-arm their own voters, yet again, thus pissing off voters all over again less than one week before the Texas House speaker vote.
Any of these scenarios is a win.
