NASHVILLE (AP) — House Republicans leaders say their caucus will meet July 24 to vote for a new leader as members prepare for House Speaker Glen Casada to resign later this summer following a series of scandals.

Majority Leader William Lamberth announced Wednesday that House Republicans will meet in Nashville in late July to nominate a speaker ahead of a planned special legislative session.

Gov. Bill Lee has said he'll set a date soon on when he'll call lawmakers back to the Tennessee Capitol in order to allow the full GOP-controlled House to formally vote on a new speaker.

Casada has been dogged by calls to resign since it was revealed he exchanged text messages containing sexually explicit language about women with his former chief of staff several years ago, among other controversies.
