I don’t know I’ve seen this reported anywhere else yet, but word around town is that freshman GOP Rep. John Burris has thrown himself up as a candidate for the minority leader slot in the state House of Representatives. The position is currently held by Rep. Bryan King, who says he hasn’t decided if he’ll seek re-election to the post but will decide later in the year.

King says the minority leader election is typically held in June, but given that the legislature will meet for a budget session in early 2010, he may move the vote to an earlier date. Others may be eyeing the post, as well.
