appears destined to become the new Speaker of the NCHouse, replacing Tim Moore who has his own eye on a free US House seat that was created specially for him. Destin Hall's biggest rivals, John Bell and Jason Saine, have both dropped out of the race and endorsed him.
We profiled Hall and Bell back in July. We called Hall "slick," which was not meant as praise (and I don't take it back now).
Less corrupt than the previous Speaker? Remains to be seen. Should be easy since Tim Moore set a high benchmark.
