Ala. House Democrats to Select Party Leaders

By Associated Press

Montgomery, AL – The Democrats in the Alabama House will meet Nov. 30 to do something that none of them has ever done before: elect minority leaders.

Alabama Democrats lost their majority in the House in the election Nov. 2. The new Democratic minority met for the first time Friday in Montgomery, but decided to wait on electing leaders until after the Thanksgiving holidays. The leaders elected Nov. 30 will be new because the former Democratic majority leader, Ken Guin, lost in the election, and the former Democratic House speaker, Seth Hammett, retired.

The new House Republican majority has already decided that it wants state Rep. Mike Hubbard of Auburn to be speaker.
