TNGOP Statement On The House Republican Caucus Meeting Regarding Speaker Casada

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden released the following statement on the House Republican Caucus meeting regarding Speaker Glen Casada: 

"The events and actions surrounding Speaker Casada have been a distraction from the great accomplishments of this Legislature and Governor Bill Lee. Our Republican leadership in the legislature took the right course of action by calling today's meeting. The vote of no confidence by the Republican caucus sends a clear message; it is time for the Speaker to heed the advice of the majority of his fellow legislators and step down from his position of leadership and allow someone else to begin the process of restoring the trust of all Tennesseans."
