Overview

Who & Where

David Simpson
After serving only one session in the Legislature, David Simpson chose to challenge Joe Straus for the job of Speaker of the House. What may look like a lack of experience at first glance, was in fact no lacking in conservative fervor on Simpson's behalf. With Bryan Hughes dropping out as an alternative to Straus, Simpson was the only remaining choice. Backing for Simpson appears to have been limited to less than a dozen members. Proving unable to garner more support, Simpson withdrew his candidacy for Speaker on the first day of the Legislature.
