McCoy Re-Elected House Speaker

By a vote of 62-60, Speaker Billy McCoy was re-elected Speaker of the House. Obviously, I was on the short end of that vote, seeing as though I supported Rep. Jeff Smith.

The tone of the day was set by two tie votes for temporary Speaker, with Robert Johnson tying Ed Blackmon 61-61 twice before Blackmon won on the third try 62-60.
