    The Lt. Governor doesn’t have much power to influence this process in most cases, but in spite of that fact, signing the pledge is not a bad idea.

    The idea of an elected Lt. Governor is that the office should enough power to serve as a “check” on the backyard interests inherent in a chamber whose membership is elected from local districts. Towards that end, it would be nice if some of the powers the office held, which were stripped following the tenure of Nick Theodore, such as conference committee appointments, were restored.

    We’ve seen those who argue the office should become a running mate with no real powers, and others who argue it should have real teeth. Count me among the latter.

    Perhaps the discussion of that question could become part of these candidates’ campaign messages?

    (… waiting to be accused of being Ken Ard’s boy again … and waiting for someone to actually prove it)
