Renner, R-Palm Coast, will formally become speaker Tuesday during a post-election organization session, with the GOP holding an 85-35 “supermajority” in the House.

Grant, R-Port Charlotte, also served as majority the past two years under outgoing Speaker Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor. Grant served in the House from 2004 through 2008 and returned in 2016.

A news release Thursday said Grant will be “responsible for guiding the Republican Conference and shepherding the Republican agenda.” Clemons, R-Newberry, was first elected to the House in 2016 and served as deputy majority leader and majority whip the past two years. As speaker pro tempore, he will be a top lieutenant to Renner.
