‘Calm' Cotter Prepares To Take House Reins

Speaker-elect Kevin Cotter

House Speaker-elect Kevin Cotter says he originally tried to talk himself out of running for the House in 2009 when the idea first came to mind, but he simply couldn't get it out of his head, and four years later he's preparing to lead a 63-member Republican majority caucus.

When Mr. Cotter (R-Mount Pleasant) first thought about running for office, he said the state of the economy was his main catalyst.
