Assembly Republicans sorting themselves out

With the announcement by Mike Huebsch that he is not running for assembly minority leader, the scramble is on for the leadership positions. Jeff Fitzgerald is already running for assembly minority leader. Look for an announcement today from conservative Scott Newcomer that he's joining the race. Geography, fundraising ability and conservative credentials will all play a factor.

Wauwatosa representative Leah Vukmir is in line for assistant minority leader. If there's a challenge it may be from Mark Gundrum. Either way that means southeastern Wisconsin.

Finally, it looks like Scott Suder for Caucus Chairman. The leadership elections look like they will be held on Monday.
