Lujan retains Speaker post

No Comments

Heath Haussamen has the goods:

House Democrats have voted to keep Ben Lujan as their speaker.

That’s about all I can tell you at this point. The closed-door meeting is still ongoing. I don’t know the vote count, but I’m told that Lujan has won.

The representatives have not yet decided who will be majority leader. I don’t know whether Ken Martinez will attempt to keep that job now that he has lost the speaker battle.
