“Thank you,” newly elected state Senate President Kevin Grantham, R-Canon City, said in a speech that launched the 71st General Assembly session of the Senate on Wednesday. “And welcome... to all of the holdovers, the crossovers, the do-overs, our re-elected members and our two new members: Senators Fenberg and Smallwood,” he said.
It was a memorable line.
The holdovers in the Senate are the 17 lucky senators who didn’t have to run for reelection this year.
The crossovers are the eight who came to the Senate from the House.
