Everett Backs Blunt

Rep Terry Everett (R-Enterprise) has gone public with his support backing Rep Roy Blunt (R-MO) to become the next House Majority Leader. Blunt is currently the Acting Majority Leader having taken over from Tom Delay (R-TX) during Delay's legal troubles. But with Delay's announcement that he is permanently stepping down from the post, a heated Republican leadership battle has developed for the #2 spot in the House.

Everett joins colleague Jo Bonner (R-Mobile) in backing Blunt, while Mike Rogers, Robert Aderholt, and Spencer Bachus have thus far refrained from publicly engaging in the race.

Blunt claims the private support of a majority of House Republicans, but does not have that many public backers. John Boehner (R-OH) also has significant support and has proven to be Blunt's chief rival, but John Shadegg (R-AZ) recently joined the race and though he has not developed a long list of public backers he has won the support of some influential conservatives around the country.

It is certainly possible that some of Alabama's Republican members are private commits to Blunt, but for one reason or another don't want to go public with their support. The leadership elections are scheduled for early February and though Blunt has the edge currently, don't be surprised if the race tightens as the elections approach. In that case Mike Rogers, Robert Aderholt, and Spencer Bachus may be key votes in deciding the next House Majority Leader.

Sure am glad to see that Mr. Everett is still alive!. If one had to make that decision based upon the number of visits that he has made to Autauga County in the last two, or even four or more, years, I'd have to surmise that he was deceased. Some GOP'ers just put his picture on the table during meeting to remind us of who our representative is!
Thanks for letting us know his status.

I wish Everett could get some decent opposition as do many other Republicans. He is an absolute waste of a congressional seat.

You're right on the spelling of course, not sure how I missed it. Changed it. Thanks for keeping me honest.
