A New Majority (Leader)

With House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith’s election to Congress last week in the Republican tsunami, the search for someone to take his place in Richmond is underway.

Smart money says Del. Kirk Cox (R-Colonial Heights) is a shoo-in for the job. Cox is the majority whip, a budget conferee and the vice-chairman of the Appropriations Committee.

Other names being tossed around — at least in casual conversation — include delegates Tim Hugo (Fairfax) and Terry Kilgore (Gate City).

House Republicans will pick a new majority leader in a closed door meeting, likely in December.

What are you hearing? Is there a dark horse in the mix here?
