Pender – GOP Senators planning to “throw yoke” on “Maximus Tater” (Bryant “cheers”)

The Lite Governor, Ruler of the Senate, Arbiter of All Mississippi Legislation, Maximus Tater I Tate Reeves has trouble brewing in his ranks — a rather large group of Republican senators talking about trying to throw the yoke he has on them and the Legislature as a whole.

And they’re being (quietly) cheered on by House leaders and Gov. Phil Bryant’s camp.

A group of 15 Republican senators — about half of the GOP ranks and nearly a third of the chamber — held a secret meeting(s) last week to discuss their displeasure with Maximus Tater. As with most things at the Capitol, it didn’t stay secret very long. But I should note, they really, really didn’t want this column coming out today.
