       GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) _ Gillette Rep. Tom Lubnau, II, will be the next speaker of the House.
       A majority of 52 Republican representatives who met in Casper Saturday picked Lubnau in a straw poll. The non-binding poll becomes official when the new Wyoming Legislature officially votes for Lubnau after members are sworn in Jan. 8.
       Lubnau is an attorney who has been in the House for seven years. He previously served as speaker pro tem and as the majority floor leader.
       He will hold the new position for the next two years.
       Lubnau is the first representative from Campbell County to hold the highest ranking position in the House since Cliff Davis did 40 years ago.
