Dockery skipping Haridopolos Senate prez ceremony?



The Senate Republican Caucus just began its meeting to designate Sen. Mike Haridopolos the next Senate president, effective November 2010.

Notably absent: Lakeland Sen. Paula Dockery, the moderate Republican who went against her party's leadership in opposing the commuter rail bill that passed the Senate about an hour ago, 27-10.
