Following House Speaker [[William McCoy]]'s (D) decision not to run for re-election in 2011, lawmakers are posturing to run for his powerful legislative position. According to reports, Brown is considered a possible candidate for the speakership. A possible frontrunner is [[Jeffrey Smith]] (R) who narrowly lost the 2008 speaker election by a single vote. Lawmakers will vote on a new speaker at the start of the 2012 session. A narrow margin of power for either party following the election could force lawmakers to form a coalition in order to elect a new speaker.<ref>[http://www.hattiesburgamerican.com/article/20110804/OPINION/108040311/Race-House-speaker-begins-earnest ''Race for House speaker begins in earnest," August 3, 2011]</ref>
