Trent Lott has stepped down as Senate Republican leader, GOP sources say. The reports come as more Republican senators line up behind Bill Frist as a successor to Lott, amid the continued controversy over Lott's comments concerning Strom Thurmond's 1948 segregationist campaign for the White House.
Lott is expected to retain his seat as Senator from Mississippi, while giving up the majority leadership position in the upper house of Congress.
I don't know much about Frist, so I'm reserving judgment. However, I think Lott did the right thing, perhaps the only thing he could do. There was no way he was going to recover from this and be able to lead the senate effectively.
I did a run of my blogroll and I think I was the first to post this. I beat LGF out by three minutes.
Yea, I know the only thing this means is that it proves I'm reading weblogs on the job. You take what you can get.
