Last evening, I pointed out a couple of paragraphs from an AJC article that discussed rumors concerning a couple of Republican Senators.
Vote information wasn’t available last night, but as you’ll see here three Republicans (Jeff Chapman, Mitch Seabaugh and Preston Smith) vote against HB 307. Judson Hill, after a meeting with leadership left the capitol and did not vote.
Apparently, Hill and Smith resigned their chairmanships and Seabaugh,
who is considering not running for re-election to the Senate (see update below), was removed from the Majority Whip post by Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and leadership over HB 307.
[UPDATE – 4/4] Sen. Seabaugh e-mailed to tell me that he is seeking re-election.
