Politics as usual?

One of the interesting things about the recently passed Daylight Savings Time bill is how it passed. A freshman Republican representative who campaigned opposing the DST bill ended up casting the 51st vote. And he did it without being offered anything.

What was the reason for the vote? He observed a couple of Democrats who had voted in favor of DST each time, but switched in an attempt to deny a big political victory for the governor.

(And it's a big political victory only in that no one had managed to do it before. It's an issue that doesn't resonate with the core issues of either party.)
