In a move that surprised some and delighted others, Rep. Gabrielle LeDoux, a nominal Republican from Muldoon, today broke away from the House Democrat-led Majority, and voted in favor of the Senate’s version of the operating budget.
That was tantamount to voting against the House Majority’s budget that she had voted for days earlier.
“I do not do this lightly because the bipartisan caucus is a binding caucus, demanding we all vote on budget votes. So I know that there are going to be consequences for this vote. But I am willing to live with this decision, Mr. Speaker,” LeDoux said, addressing the chair during what is normally a procedural vote.
