Cogdill Elected New Senate Republican Leader

Sacramento, Ca — 14th District State Senator Dave Cogdill will soon take over as the leader of the Senate Republican Caucus.

Cogdill has been elected to replace Irvine´s Dick Ackerman who will term out at the end of the year.

“I am both honored and humbled that my colleagues have chosen me to lead them,” says Cogdill. “We are a dynamic and unified caucus and I look forward to working more closely with each and every one of our distinguished Senators.”

“I congratulate Senator Dave Cogdill on his election as leader of the Senate Republican Caucus,” said Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in written release.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Senator Ackerman over the past three years and he has been a great leader for the people of California. I look forward to continuing this partnership with Senator Cogdill as he assumes this leadership role and working with him and all my Republican colleagues to tackle the important issues facing our state.”

Cogdill´s 14th District includes Tuolumne County.
