SENATE LEADERSHIP BATTLE QUICKLY SPILLS INTO THE OPEN

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 6, 2017.....Their chamber seemingly adrift, state senators were in constant contact with each other in the days leading up to Monday night's dramatic vote to elect Harriette Chandler as acting president, and the chatter is unlikely to diminish in the weeks ahead.

Three senators - Sens. Eileen Donoghue, Linda Dorcena Forry and Karen Spilka - have now publicly acknowledged their desire to seek the presidency if a "vacancy" occurs, and a fourth - Sen. Sal DiDomenico - all but confirmed his interest in the post in an interview Tuesday night. The self-acknowledgement of those senators' ambitions marks a rare spilling out into the public of a process typically reserved for back-channel jockeying.
