Tom Taylor on the Speakership Battle

House Republican Leader Tom Taylor was interviewed this morning on KSNM-AM in Las Cruces by Michael Swickard and Jim Spence. Naturally the topic of Joe Cervantes' challenge of House Speaker Ben Lujan came up.

As Taylor told me when I talked to him late last week, Taylor wouldn't make any predictions as to how the House Republicans would vote and wouldn't say how he'd vote himself. "All I can say it's very close," he said. Taylor said the speaker's race will be "an 18th-hour decision."

There's a podcast of the show HERE. (Taylor comes on about 30 minutes into the segment and starts talking about the speaker's race about at the 35-minute mark.)
