TYLER - Joe Straus, the Speaker of the Texas House is facing some criticism from tea partiers in East Texas and across the state.
They say he's not conservative enough.
Tea party officials in Tyler say Joe Straus has ignored and buried issues that are important to them like immigration and gun laws, and they say they've worked too hard getting conservative representatives elected, that they don't want a liberal Speaker of the House.
