GOP Caucus to meet later today.
Meeting to set the ground rules for electing new Majority Whip.
Littleton, Hawk and T. Hill are names mentioned so far.
House leadership, smarting from their incompetent handling of the entire le affaire Durham, are moving at warp speed to fill the slot. Names being tossed about include: Rep. Mary Littleton, Rep. David Hawk and Rep. Timothy Hill.
All of those mentioned so far reportedly have bones to pick with the House leadership, so look for the establishment folks (Haslam toadies) to throw in a name of their own.
An actual vote on a replacement is not expected at today’s meeting.
