BUZZ: Greg Hughes Selected Utah House Speaker

Greg HughesAs the Utah House Republican caucus closes its meeting tonight, Greg Hughes will be announced as Speaker of the Utah House. Jim Dunnigan will be House Majority Leader, Francis Gibson will be Majority Whip, and Brad Wilson has a lock on House Majority Assistant Whip.

The selection of Hughes as Speaker comes after rumors prior to the meeting put the Salt Lake legislator at the front of the race for the spot. He won selection after just one round of voting, with the vote tally stopping once the count rose above 31, the number sufficient to secure the top spot.
