Seattle Times: 2 Dems join GOP in state Senate ‘coup,’ say parties will split power

Kick Rodney Tom and Tim Sheldon out of the Democratic Caucus, let the Republicans come up with their partisan budget in the Senate, the Dems in the House, reconcile the two budgets in the inevitable Special Session.

Two conservative Democratic state senators announced today they will join with Senate Republicans to form a “majority coalition caucus” in which they say power will more or less be split between the two parties.

The coup, which has been rumored since Republicans gained a seat in the Senate in last month’s election, would install one of the conservative Democrats, former Republican Rodney Tom of Bellevue, as the body’s majority leader and the other, Tim Sheldon of Potlach, as the president pro tempore.
