State Sen. John Cullerton (D-Chicago) was re-elected president of the Illinois State Senate on Wednesday.
Cullerton has held the office since 2009. Illinois Supreme Court Justice Mary Jane Theis administered the oath of office to Cullerton after the vote. Cullerton defeated State Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) 39-18. […]
Cullerton added that Brady would be a great minority leader.
Cullerton didn’t say Brady would be a “great” minority leader.
* From Cullerton’s prepared remarks…
To leader Brady, congratulations. The Republican caucus chose wisely in turning to you for leadership.
You’re going to be — and I really mean this — … a super … minority leader these next two years.
A “super minority leader.” Get it? The Senate Republicans are in the super-minority? It was a joke! Is this thing on? Hello?
