Team Mingo Violations Cost H.K. White Speaker Position – Probable Winner: Miley

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Although counting heads prior to a legislative party caucus is an imprecise science, it appears going into a House Democratic caucus some time later this month, House Judiciary Chairman Tim Miley, D-Harrison, has more than enough votes at the moment to win the majority nomination as House speaker.

While that would be a victory for those wishing to (mostly) maintain the status quo in House leadership, and a victory for the labor unions that backed Miley, the biggest winners in a Miley speakership (at least they seem to think so) is the state GOP.
