Williams, Sexton Confirm They Will Seek House Speakership

The race to succeed Glen Casada as speaker of the House of Representatives got a little more crowded this week, after two more Republican candidates launched their own bids, the Tennessean reports. Former House Republican Caucus chair Ryan Williams formally announced his bid in a letter to his colleagues, while Rep. Cameron Sexton, who serves as the House Republican Caucus chair, officially confirmed his entry into the race this week. Williams and Sexton join Reps. Mike Carter, Matthew Hill, Curtis Johnson and Jay Reedy as those vying to be speaker.
