David Jolly goes to bat for Dan Webster






Rep. David Jolly has emerged as Dan Webster's point man in the race for House speaker. Jolly is working fellow members and on Monday will send this letter.

"We don't need the next Speaker to be the face of the party as we head into a presidential election year where our party's nominee will fill that role," Jolly writes. "We need a Speaker committed to rebuilding the greatness of our institution through legislative leadership, a Speaker who cares less for the limelight and more for the talent of every thought leader in our conference."
