|Anders supported Ellington|
Rep. Andy Anders of Ferriday supported Rep. Noble Ellington of Winnsboro in his unsuccessful bid Monday to become Speaker Pro-Tempore in the state House of Representatives.
By a 53-48 vote, Rep. Joel Robideaux, an Independent from Lafayette, was chosen Speaker Pro-Tempore over Ellington. The roll call voice vote was conducted shortly after the Legislature convened the 2010 Regular Session.
"It was a lot closer than everybody anticipated," said Anders. "Noble got the support of most of North Louisiana legislators because we stuck together. I hope not, but there could be some fall out from this."
Ellington's bid for the No. 2 leadership position in the House sparked a public feud between Ellington and Speaker of the House Jim Tucker. Tucker, R-Metairie, said he opposed Ellington serving as Speaker Pro-Tempore because northern Louisiana was already well represented in leadership positions in the Legislature.
Six of northeast Louisiana's eight House members voted for Ellington. The two lawmakers from northeast Louisiana who voted for Robideaux were Reps. Kay Katz, R-Monroe and Rosalind Jones, D-Monroe.
Northeast Louisiana House members who voted for Ellington in addition to Anders were Reps. Bubba Chaney, D-Rayville; Rick Gallot, D-Grambling; Hollis Downs, R-Ruston; Sam Little, R-Bastrop; Frank Hoffmann, R-West Monroe; and Jim Fannin, D-Jonesboro.
