Former Speaker of the House, Dan Blue has been selected by local democrats to replace the late Senator Vernon Malone. His addition to the Senate is making for some interesting rounds of the what if game?
Should there be a vacancy in the position of President Pro Tempore of the Senate in the near future, would Blue shakeup the match ups? For a man that was out of government just a couple of years ago.
The question remains how will Blue adapt to the very different atmosphere of the Senate. The leadership runs the place with an iron fist and rarely allow debate, even when they hold a clear majority of the votes.
