Cox and the House Leadership
Whats even more interesting is that the entire balance of cash raised for that PAC is only about $85,000; so basically all of the money came from Wilkins' contribution.
Anyway, this got me thinking what could be going on. I have heard that Cox wants to be speaker whenever Bill Howell steps down from the position.
I have heard many GOPs complain that our current speaker needs to be more like Vance, saying Vance was much better. It seems that Wilkins is still very well liked amongst alot of the GOP faithful (at least for his leadership abilities). If this means that Vance Wilkins will be endorsing Kirk Cox for speaker, whenever that occurs; that should give Cox a huge advantage in that endeavor. Not only will people want Vance to pick his best opinion of who will do a good job; but his connections are probably still solid and would provide alot of help to whoever he wanted to get Speaker.
This falls into another larger issue that I will address either tomorrow or next week. I just wanted to set the stage for what could/would happen in the future.
