Republicans vote Hubbard as choice for next speaker

House Republicans selected Alabama Republican Party Chairman Mike Hubbard, who is also a state representative from Auburn, as their choice to be the next speaker of the House. The full House will vote when the Legislature convenes to organize in January or before in a special session.
Hubbard and Rep. Paul DeMarco of Homewood were both considered candidates for the job.
Hubbard is considered the architect of Campaign 2010, the Republican plan to raise money and take control of the Legislature from Democrats for the first time in more than 130 years.
Republicans easily took control of the House and the Senate from Democrats on Tuesday.
