Battleground State

Can we believe that the budget is going to be done on time?  The Governor says yes, but it seems like time and again, the legislature says no.  This time, Senator Ron Gould is now trying to think up even more ways to be a huge pain causing even more problems for the Governor – someone from the same party as him, no less.

Heck, it only takes losing three seats in the State Senate to make a split.
