In all the excitement building up to the TN House Speaker vote yesterday. A source indicated that Knox County State Representative Harry Brooks was co hosting a meet and greet for the 22 House Republican freshman to meet Speaker candidate Glenn Casada. At first, I was unable to confirm that Brooks was co hosting a meet and greet. But then I received a reliable confirmation that in fact Brooks was co hosting a meet and greet for Casada. However, the meet and greet was last night. The vote for Speaker was at 1 p.m. Nashville time, 2 p.m. Knoxville time. No reason to meet the runner-up candidate for Speaker at that point.
