At the MGA for Speaker Vote Today 5/1!

Patriot Picket News Service is here today at the Maryland General Assembly for the Special Session to report first hand on the vote to select the new Speaker of the MD House of Delegates!

The new House Speaker replaces the late Delegate Michael E. Busch, who died April 7, 2019.

The only two candidates for the position are both Democrats; Dems hold a 2 to 1 majority in the House of Delegates.

Delegate Maggie McIntosh and Delegate Dereck Davis are the candidates, and their competition to be selected has fractured The Party, possibly to our benefit.

This thread is to post updates, info and speculation about the political significance and potential beneficial consequences for MD 2A from the impending vote, which occurs today when the Special Session is convened at 12 noon.

I expect the special session to have a live audio (no video) feed from the floor of the House of Delegates.

Click on the link below to bring up the MGA homepage; look for the “session status“ box beneath the right hand column entitled “what’s happening now“ to the right side on this homepage.

Keep refreshing this page and look for a red “live“ button to appear in this session status box, which indicates that the live feed from the House floor has commenced.

Click that button to listen to the legislators speaking about the vote on the live audio.

(If the audio feed does not appear in a new window, go to your browser settings and click the button that says “allow pop-ups“ – – the audio feed opens in a new window which appears as a “pop up” on your screen.)

The significance of this vote is that the Democrats are badly split in their support between the two Dem candidates for Speaker, and for the first time in a generation the Republicans have some remarkable voting leverage in the MGA.

MD House Republicans, though in the Minority, can nevertheless potentially influence the outcome of this vote, asking for some political concessions in exchange for that support of one candidate: Delegate Dereck Davis, who is viewed as more moderate than Delegate Maggie McIntosh:

House Democrat Caucus just emerged without a press conference; Delegate Moon exulting beyond reporter Bryan Sears about the meeting.

About what, unknown as yet.
