Casada to Resign as House Speaker

House Speaker Glen Casada recently announced he will resign his leadership position in the coming weeks, the Tennessean reports. The decision comes on the heels of a meeting of Republican leaders, which resulted in a vote of no confidence in Casada's leadership. "When I return to town on June 3rd, I will meet with caucus leadership to determine the best date for me to resign as speaker so that I can facilitate a smooth transition," Casada said in a statement. Casada has served as House Speaker for four months.
