Berman announces support of Craddick for Speaker of the House

State Representative Leo Berman today announced his support for the reappointment of Tom Craddick as Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, stating Craddick's experience and help on initiatives including balancing the budget, expanding renewable energy, and increasing penalties for child predators as among the reasons for his support.

Last week, Rep. Tommy Merritt announced that he would be challenging Craddick's reappointment as Speaker, saying that Craddick's "arrogance and abuse of political power" had split the House and the last session that was held was an "embarrasment".
