Tim Cullen of the Wisconsin 14 has decided to take his ball and go home. He has left the Demcratic Caucus and is declaring as an independent. Which means that that we are now left with 16 Repulicans, 16 Democrats and an independent.
Cullen’s reason for leaving the Democratic caucus:
[H]e was insulted by not being named chairman of any Senate committees after the Democrats regain control of that chamber.
He doesn’t get his way so he slaps everyone in the state of Wisconsin who worked so hard to take control of the Senate.
He’ll still be expected to vote for the Dems for Majority Leader.
