If you have enough plasmid DNA to transform with, it doesn't matter (for 
most strains) if you transform two plasmids at the same time. The 
transformation efficiency is slightly lower but it still works and is 
less time consuming. The only thing you have to find out is if your 
strain transforms better with the LiAc method or the electroporation method.
Protocols for cotransformation are basically the same as for single 
plasmid transformation but if you use the electroporation method and put 
more plasmid DNA in, you might have to change the parameters to get the 
expected time constant (you'll probably have to increase the resistant).
Good luck.
