Representative Dan Dorman

The Star Tribune has a blurb on Representative Dan Dorman He is "revolting" against House Republican leadership by supporting a larger budget, and thus higher taxes. Since the Republicans hold the House 68-66, a defection of one person is a big deal, although the article correctly points out the fact that not all Democrats may be willing to vote for higher taxes themselves.

Rep. Dorman also went against Republicans last year by refusing to support their huge Local Government Aid cuts. I've heard that the House Republican caucus is in complete disarray these days and that a lot of Republicans are looking to bail on their leadership. If Rep. Dorman does take a half-dozen other Republicans with him, as he says he might, then things could really get interesting.

Representative Dorman fought a tough fight last legislative session in trying to do what he felt was right. He was not treated the best by his caucus or the governor's office.

The party gives lip service to the "big tent" philosphy yet there did not appear to be any room for Representative Dorman in the Republican tent.

He has taken a lot of heat and yet has remained loyal to the caucus, despite some attempts to push him out. He is a moderate Republican but is and should remain an important leader in promoting the Repubican agenda.

If Dorman is for higher taxes he is a Republican in name only....

I doubt the people that voted him into office would approve of his "tax & spend" liberal ways....
