Dallas Morning News: Straus Texan of the Year

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Texas House Speaker Joe Straus is Texan of the Year, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Its editorial board writes Straus protected the state from the "far right dominance of the Republican Party." The writers call his impact "uncommon", by shielding us from some of the Party's worst political impulses.

This includes Straus' role blocking the so-called bathroom bill. Straus said it would bring major economic damage. 

Straus is not running for re-election, giving up the speaker post after a record-tying ten years.
