Jim Tucker (R-Terrytown) to be LA's Speaker of the House

Democrats won a narrow majority of the state House races in Louisiana (53 to 50, with 2 independents), but a Republican is going to be the next Speaker of the House. Gov.-elect Jindal has come out publicly for Jim Tucker, who also has the support of state Rep. Karen Carter and a number of other black Democratic state representatives. Therefore Tucker will be elected Speaker, not the leading Democratic contender, state Rep. Don Cazayoux.
