Representative Four Price had announced that he would be running for Texas House Speaker. Rep. Price has since then dropped out.

KAMR Local 4 News’ Angelina Perez spoke with Rep. Price about his decision.

“If I didn’t want to go all the way to a caucus vote which may lead to a lot of uncertainty,” Rep. Price stated, “Would I be willing to position myself behind a candidate who’d put himself in a position to not only unite the party but our entire body?”

In January, Rep. Price will head back to Austin for the 86th legislative session.
