I like Righter. I’ve often attended Senate Executive Committee hearings just to watch him spar with former Chairman Don Harmon. I didn’t care what the bills were, I wanted to see the show.
But that floor speech was weird, man. And I agree with Sen. Kimberly Lightford’s response, which was basically I’ve never heard a Republican argue for keeping people on public assistance programs like TANF and foodstamps.

Lightford gives closing speech on minimum wage vote
