The Washington state Senate has a majority again.

Narrowly deciding Tuesday to bypass the top choice of local Republican Party activists, the Pierce County Council appointed University Place Republican Rep. Steve O’Ban to the Senate.

The council’s emergency resolution restores the Senate GOP and its two Democratic allies to full strength in an ongoing special session, breaking a 24-24 tie left by the death of Mike Carrell last week from complications related to treatment of a pre-cancerous condition.
