Monserrate: Chaos Has Been Therapeutic for Dems

State Senator Hiram Monserrate is a fan of John Sampson, the potential new leader of the State Senate Democrats, calling him “a fine gentleman.”
“I like him as an individual,” Monserrate said in a phone interview Saturday evening. “I think it would be premature to say anything more than that.”
As the man at the center of the chaotic storm in Albany, who is being fought over by Republicans and Democrats, Monserrate is walking a fine line. In the relatively brief phone call, he offered words of support for a Republican-dominated coalition majority in the Senate, while at the same time suggesting that he might return to the Democratic conference.
