Illinois Senate President John Cullerton will be leading a veto proof Senate news sources predicted on Wednesday following the election.
The Illinois legislature had strong gains by Democrats, leading a GOP strategist to call the election a blood bath, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Cullerton’s Senate Democrats gained five seats, giving the party a 40-19 veto-proof majority.
In the House, Michael Madigan’s Democrats gained seven seats, giving the party a veto-proof majority in that chamber as well.
One loser: Democratic Governor Pat Quinn.
