NOBLE OBLIGE:

La House now GOP for first time since Reconstruction (Michelle Millhollon, December 17, 2010, The Advocate)

The Louisiana House swung Republican Friday with state Rep. Noble Ellington’s defection from the Democratic Party. [...]

Recent defections from the Democratic ranks in Louisiana include state Rep. Fred Mills, state Sen. John Alario, state Sen. John Smith, state Rep. Walker Hines and state Rep. Simone Champagne.

Ellington’s switch gave Republicans the additional member they needed to take control of the House.

There now are 53 Republicans, 48 Democrats and four House members without a party affiliation.

Democrats still dominate the state Senate with 20 members. The Republican have 18 senators and there is one vacancy.


Does the O-pocalypse never end?
