State Republican leaders are scrambling to unify party members after N.C. House Minority Leader Leo Daughtry, R-Johnston, announced Sunday that he does not have enough votes to win election as House speaker. Daughtry, who was selected Nov. 17 by the Republican caucus as its speaker nominee for the 2003-05 session, must gain the full support of Republicans to win the election. "(I am doing) all I can do to convince people to vote for me," he said. About 53 Republicans have pledged their support, Daughtry said. He is making phone calls to those still on the fence.
