An historic state senate session has begun with not one, but two, leaders. uncertainty about which party will have a majority by the end of the month has led the senate to pick co-Presidents pro tem for the first time in State history. The democrat is Liberty Senator Ed Quick, who says he wants to accomplish as many things as he can for posterity during his temporary stay in the legislature. His co-leader of the senate is Republican Peter Kinder of Cape Girardeau, who remembered the historic nature of the moment by noting a member of his party hadn’t held the pro-tem position for more than 50 years. Special elections later this month could establish a majority party for the Senate or leave it evenly divided.
