It appears that Republican state Senator Randy Richardville, who represents Michigan's 17th Senate District, will be the state's next Senate Majority Leader. On it's Facebook page, the Gongwer News Service says, "Richardville is assured election... as incoming Senator John Pross will drop out of the race."
Senate Democrats elected state Senator Gretchen Whitmer yesterday as their caucus leader.
Richardville won a second-term in the state Senate on Tuesday by defeating John Spencer.
He spent three terms in the Michigan House of Representatives from 1999-2004.
