Republicans applaud leadership in Alabama Senate

At least two Republicans in the Alabama Senate, including the minority leader and a 2010 candidate for lieutenant governor, have recently applauded the Democrats in the majority for their leadership.

"To me, we have had a very productive session," said Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo, who has said he will run for lieutenant governor.

Erwin said he saluted the leadership for putting bills up for consideration that the Senate was able to pass and show productivity.

During "Capitol Journal" on Alabama Public Television, Senate Minority Leader Jabo Waggoner, Vestavia Hills, said on Friday that he has seen more cooperation this year. He said the leadership from the two parties meet each Tuesday and have a meal together each week.

Republicans have repeatedly attacked the Democratic leadership in the Senate.
