  •  There's no "caucusing" opportunity for him (4+ / 0-)

    He's the L.G., not a state Senator, he votes only to break ties on a vote-by-vote basis and isn't a member of any caucus.  He votes however he wants in every case, too.

      There was a vote at the start of the session to determine who would control the chamber. IIRC he broke the tie in that vote and allowed the Republicans to control all the committees. If the Democrats called for a vote to determine control, couldn't he break the tie and put them in power?
