IN House Republicans accept Bosma's handpicked successor
By: Tim Murray - Tuesday, December 3, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana House Republicans met Monday at the Statehouse and selected State Rep. Todd Huston (R-Fishers) to serve as the next House speaker.

House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) recently announced his plans to not seek re-election and retire after the 2020 legislative session.

To smooth the transition, House Republicans gathered on Monday and chose Bosma’s handpicked successor to serve as speaker-elect. He will work closely with Bosma during the upcoming short session and is expected to be sworn in as House speaker by the full House as session closes.

First elected in 2012, Huston represents House District 37, which includes Fishers and a portion of Hamilton County.

Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued a statement saying, “Huston will be catching wind with a net to keep ultra-conservative allies on board while running in a purple district. Every bone he throws to extremists is at the expense of moderates in a constituency that elected a Democrat in 2019. There’s no winning when Speaker Huston’s decisions imperil Representative Huston’s electoral future.”
