July 2021 Group Watch: Who’s the Next AL House Speaker?

That is the question following Alabama House Speaker Mac McCutcheon’s announcement of retirement at the close of the 2022 session. McCutcheon said he will not be on the ballot for re-election to his House seat. House Majority Leader Nathan Ledbetter of Rainsville announced his candidacy for speaker, as did Ways and Means Education Chair Bill Poole of Tuscaloosa. Poole exited the pursuit as quickly as he entered. Then, Ways and Means General Fund Chair Steve Clouse of Ozark announced that he was entering the speaker’s race. Insiders speculated Connie Rowe of Jasper, who is Vice Chair of the House Republican caucus, would be a candidate, but she quickly said it’s too early to commit to run with the decision not being made until December 2022. Stay tuned: Next year’s organizational session may be more of a thriller than the elections themselves!
