Maine, the oldest state, now has the nation’s youngest House speaker in modern history. At 28, Ryan Fecteau is also the first out gay person in the Maine Legislature’s most powerful role, according to Maine’s House Clerk and the National Conference of State Legislatures. He was elected by his House colleagues on Wednesday.⁠

Correction: This post clarifies that Fecteau is the first out gay person to serve as the House speaker in the Maine Legislature.

    And he could be simply the youngest person to hold the job.
