Madison - Befitting the chaotic and tense situation involving the budget standoff, Sen. James Holperin (D-Eagle River) said Thursday that Senate Democrats were going to return to Madison on Thursday.
That was at odds with a statement by Sen. Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee) who said that decision had not yet been made pending a meeting of the Democrats later today in Illinois.
Holperin said the Democrats made the decision as a group Wednesday night to come back to Madison on Thursday. But he said not all Democrats were at that meeting.
"I'm going back. I believe many are," Holperin said in a telephone interview.
"We started out trying to delay the vote," Holperin said. "We were hopeful for a compromise. But that didn't happen."
Asked what Democrats would do once they come back, Holperin said they would wait for the Senate to reconvene and show up in the Senate chambers.
Its not the first time they have said they were coming back.
There really isn't a reason to stay away now though.
Do you think the offers that were given will be put back on the table or will they continue with what they did last night?Answer Question
