What’s up with Lou?

The California State Senate became the first state legislative body in the country to oppose Bush’s troop surge plan on Monday when they passed a resolution to urge Congress and Bush not to escalate U.S. involvement in the war.

I was less than satisfied to see this paragraph in the San Francisco chronicle regarding the resolution:

The nonbinding resolution, which will be sent to Congress if it clears the Assembly, was approved by the 40-member Senate on a largely party-line vote of 22-14. Voting “no” were 13 Republicans and one Southern California Democrat, Lou Correa of Orange County.

I’m working on getting some sort of explanation for Correa’s office. In the meantime, you can read the SFChronicle story here.


  1. Well, Correa has never claimed to be anything but a moderate. Although I am surprised that he didn’t choose to sit this out instead like four of his Senate colleagues.
    All in all, a resolution in support of a non-binding resolution (even on an issue as important as the undeclared war in Iraq) seems like a strange use of our state legislature’s time.
