We Have Another Tie!

This time in Wisconsin, where a Republican state senator (facing a recall election in June) has resigned, leaving the Senate split at 16-16.

Unlike Virginia, Wisconsin has no constitutional provision providing for the lieutenant governor (or anyone else) to break ties.  Nor, apparently, is there any statute that says what happens in this situation.

According to NCSL’s website, this leaves two options: (1) a negotiated agreement between the parties and (2) a coin toss.

A coin toss sounds good, but would they be able to agree on which coin to use?
