Caucus chairman discusses leadership election process

By Benjamin Peters

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – With the start of the next legislative session just months away, the questions concerning the House leadership races continue swirling throughout the Capitol.

New leadership is scheduled to take over the House in 2018, with a new Speaker to be decided, as well as the other top positions in the majority caucus.

Reps. Robert Cornejo, Elijah Haahr, and Holly Rehder are all seeking the Speaker’s seat for 2018 when Speaker Todd Richardson terms out. Reps. Kirk Mathews, Rocky Miller, and Rob Vescovo all seek the chair as the next Majority Floor Leader, while the race to become the next Speaker Pro Tem in the Missouri House of Representatives features three strong contenders in Reps. Jason Chipman, Glen Kolkmeyer, and John Wiemann.

The questions at this time, however, is just when the votes for these races will take place.

Rep. Kolkmeyer is the caucus chair and says that in the case of the Majority Floor Leader, it all seems to depend on the decisions of current Majority Floor Leader Mike Cierpiot, who is currently seeking a bid for a state senate. If he wins that race, he would have to step down to take the seat.

“The vote won’t take place until Cierpiot would resign from his position as majority floor leader,” Kolkmeyer said. “If not, all of those leadership positions, except the speaker, would take place the day after the General Election of 2018.

“Obviously, if there were a vacancy, if Cierpiot were to resign that leadership seat, then we would have a special election of the caucus a month or so after that as long as we’re up and running come the beginning of session.”

The caucus will meet once during the summer, and again during veto session, and finally for a winter caucus, which several sources say is most likely when a vote would take place if Cierpiot were to be elected to the state senate.

The vote for the Speaker designee is a different matter, however, as the rules of the vote must be decided upon. Those rules involved the question of who can vote, whether it be the majority of the caucus or the majority of those present or whether senior representatives can vote for the new designee.

That vote is scheduled to take place during the veto session. As for everything else, Kolkmeyer says, nothing is actually scheduled just yet.

  13. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  18. Ernest Quintana, 78, was at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont when a doctor – appearing on the robot’s screen – informed him that he would die within a few days.

    The hospital says it “regrets falling short” of the family’s expectations.

    Mr Quintana died the next day.

  30. These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

  34. Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
