Cullen leaving Senate Dem caucus, considering whether to become independent

Sen. Tim Cullen sent an email to his Dem colleagues this afternoon announcing he is leaving he caucus, calling the committee assignments doled out by new Majority Leader Mark Miller "an insult to me and the people of the 15th Senate District."

Cullen wrote he will take the new few days to decide whether he will become an independent, but he will not join the GOP.

Cullen is the only one of the 17-member Dem caucus who was not appointed to chair a committee after Dems took back the majority 17-16 following this summer's recall elections.

"This entire episode makes clear to me that Sen. Miller has no time for my independent ideas and my support of bipartisan solutions to the state’s problems," Cullen wrote.
