Gov. Roy Cooper will have some new partners at the negotiating table in 2019: The Republican majority in the state Senate will shrink by six or seven seats, ending the GOP’s veto-proof margin in that chamber.
Republicans need at least 30 votes to override a Cooper veto. The Republican majority will shrink from 35-15 to perhaps 29-21, with Democrats holding enough seats to prevent a unified GOP caucus from overriding the governor’s veto unless Republicans recruit Democratic help.
