Klein Forms State Senate Breakaway Conference:UPDATE
Celeste Katz over at the Daily News reports that Bronx State Senator Jeff Klein has formed a breakaway State Senate Democratic Conference with three other Senators. Katz reminds us that "Klein abruptly quit his job as Sampson's deputy a few days ago. Prior to that, he was removed as chairman of the DSCC, the conference's all-important political arm, and replaced by new Sen. Mike Gianaris of Queens." Although Sampson will easily hold onto his position, this group, which includes David Carlucci, Diane Savino and David Valesky, could make things interesting. Stay tuned! UPDATE: Here is Klein talking about his new breakaway group.
