The Arkansas House case secret ballots after adjournment today to pick a speaker for the 2019 legislative session and the winner was Rep. Matthew Shepherd, an El Dorado Republican.

He bested Rep. Andy Davis, also a Republican, who carried the baggage of being from Little Rock.

Shepherd is speaker-elect. Rep. Jeremy Gillam remains speaker through this year. He is not seeking re-election.
