They send us here to fight hard for the values that we’ve told people that we represent in elections,” said House Minority Leader J.T. Wilcox. And the Republican leader appeared to take a jab at the new Democratic House speaker. “And (former speaker) Frank Chopp never had trouble bringing bills to the floor that he wanted to pass,” Wilcox said.
