Moak Confirms He Is Running For Speaker
Rep. Bobby Moak (D-Bogue Chitto) told the Commercial Appeal yesterday that he plans to run for Speaker of the House after the new legislature is sworn in in January. This wasn’t a surprise or any type of secret. The question that looms is, is he the consensus choice among the Democratic caucus?
Right now, Moak is unopposed for re-election and he is sitting on a pile of cash that he can distribute to legislators over the next several months.
