Note on caucus membership lists

OLYMPIA-- A state senator stays a member of his or her caucus until a successor is sworn in. Thus, Jean Berkey and Chris Marr and some others defeated in the 2010 elections remained on the Senate Democratic Caucus roster yesterday morning, and up to that point Senator-elect Nick Harper was not listed.

That explanation  comes from Jeff Reading of the Senate Democratic Caucus, in response to yesterday's post that noted Harper was on the Senate roster for the legislative Web page, but not on the caucus web site.

So clearly it was not, as Spin Control jokingly suggested, a case of the caucus staff being so busy with other stuff that they hadn't had time to change the website.
