King says he wants to make his party decision soon
By ANDREW MIGAAssociated Press
The former governor said he's trying to make a decision on which party to caucus with in time for the leadership votes both parties will hold Wednesday.
It's widely assumed he will caucus with Democrats, especially after GOP and conservative super PACs spent millions of dollars to attack him during the campaign.
King is in orientation sessions for freshman lawmakers and has talked to both Democrats and Republicans. King will replace retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe, a prominent GOP centrist.
