House Republicans Nominate Gilbert to be Speaker, Both Caucuses Elect Leadership

Eric Burk, The Star News Network

The Virginia House Republican Caucus unanimously nominated current Minority Leader Todd

Gilbert (R-Shenandoah) for Speaker of the House. They also elected Delegate Terry Kilgore (R-Scott) to be majority leader in the 2022 session, the result of a compromise between the two former rivals for House minority leader. Although Republicans are expected to hold a 52-48 majority, two House Dems (who lost by 1< %) could ask for recounts.
