Republican State Assemblyman Dave Cogdill of Modesto was the unanimous choice to take the mantle of
Freshman Republican Leader. Cogdill, who has been one of the main voices concerning the state´s power crisis, says he´s very excited and looking forward to
being the voice of the other 13 newly elected republicans in the assembly.
He says there´s a lot of opportunity because of the backgrounds of these
newly elected people.
