The Colorado Senate GOP tweeted a photo on Wednesday that shows Senator Beth Martinez Humenik wearing boxing gloves and blasting the Democrats’ preliminary transportation spending plan as the “Roadkill Bill.” The tweet raised eyebrows — not just because Martinez Humenik was shooting political spitballs on an issue about which she has so far this session shown little engagement — but because of who it names as one of the chief road killers: Rep. Faith Winter, the Democrat who is seeking to unseat Martinez Humenik in the Nov. 6 election. “She’s my opponent,” Winter said from her seat as chair of the House Transportation Committee on Wednesday night. “You draw contradictions where you draw contradictions.” The “roadkill” flap is just one indication that, with less than a week left in the legislative session, some lawmakers are starting to turn their attention to the November election.

The transition of power within the Massachusetts Senate is scheduled for the week of July 23, as state legislators head into the frenzied final days of formal law-making. Harriette Chandler, D-Worcester, took over as state Senate president in December 2017, when Sen. Stanley Rosenberg of Amherst stepped down in reaction to sexual misconduct allegations against his now-estranged husband, Bryon Hefner. Chandler had pledged to lead the 40-member Senate on a temporary basis. Behind the scenes, other senators worked to secure votes for the presidency on a permanent basis, with Karen Spilka, D-Ashland, declaring on March 21 she had enough to get the top job. But the timeline for a transition - when exactly that change in leadership was going to happen - remained unclear until Thursday, when both Chandler and Spilka issued a joint statement. "We have both shared a strong belief that our guiding priority must be to ensure stability in the Massachusetts Senate," they said in the statement. … [Read more...] about Transition of power in Massachusetts Senate happening in July
