    Very similar to what happened in Connecticut in 2004 and Pennsylvania in 2001 when the LG was elevated to the governorship.  In both cases, the powerful state senate president pro tem was forced to give up his spot.  In CT Kevin Sullivan gave up his seat and became a figurehead for 2 years then retired, but in PA Jubelirer actually held onto both positions at the same time to much consternation.  He got thrown out after the Pay Raise Scandal anyway though.

      And "his demotion from his job as the second-most powerful man in the United States to the vice presidency, a job he found so depressing--almost clinically so--that he sometimes had to be prodded out of bed in the morning".

      From "Before The Storm".
