GOP Assemblyman Chad Mayes of Yucca Valley was not only the head of Assembly Republicans, but also the only Inland Empire lawmaker in a legislative leadership position.  Then, Mayes decided to cooperate with Democrats, and voted for Governor Brown's cap-and-trade bill, which infuriated Mayes' fellow GOPs.  Now, Mayes is doubling down on the strategy that got him deposed from his leadership position last year.  Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports.
