Crawford: Cagle is back in Senate saddle
Placeholder Image
You could safely say that the past two years were probably not the best years of Casey Cagle’s life. The lieutenant governor spent most of the 2011 and 2012 legislative sessions in a state of limbo after a rebellious faction of Republican senators passed new rules that stripped Cagle of his powers to appoint committees and run the administrative affairs of the state Senate. Although the fight was conducted largely out of public view, Cagle stewed for two years as the clique headed by President Pro Tem Tommie Williams, R-Lyons, and Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, controlled the upper chamber.
