It appears that there’s still some bad blood flowing in the Democratic caucus in the state senate.
When Larson called his first Senate caucus meeting of the new legislative session last week, three Democrats were missing - Erpenbach, Bob Jauch (D-Poplar) and Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee). Larson replaced Jauch and Taylor on the powerful Joint Finance Committee.
Jauch told the Journal Sentinel, “When (Larson) decided to barter one of the two Finance positions for his own, I decided I’m going to serve my district - I don’t serve him. When you decide to put yourself and a title ahead of the best interests of the caucus, I think it says more about him than me.”
