The 2021 Golden Horseshoe Award for Best House Democrat goes to House Speaker Chris Welch…

Speaker Welch deserves the award this year for the historical appointment and navigating the House through a monster session on several policy fronts. The writer of this blog said Welch’s handling of the energy bill was a “spectacular” accomplishment. Greg Harris has had a magnificent career and deserves an honorary mention; but this award goes to the best House Democrat in 2021. That has to be Welch for exceeding beyond all beliefs and keeping it all together.

I was pretty much ready to hand it to Greg Harris until I saw that nomination. The person is right on both counts.

* The 2021 Golden Horseshoe Award for Best House Republican goes to Rep. Seth Lewis…

A reasonable guy who votes his district, even when it means breaking with most of his caucus. Hope he continues his approach when he moves over to the Senate.

I was super hesitant to go with a freshman, in his first year no less. But he received some strong nominations and I asked folks in both parties for their opinions and decided what the heck. There will be a lifetime achievement award for each party, so maybe the Batman and Leader Harris will win those.

* On to today’s categories…

Best Senate Democrat

Best Senate Republican
