Grothman Elected As Senate Assistant Majority Leader
Wisconsin is Now Open for Business and Jobs
Madison: Today, Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) was unanimously elected to the post of Assistant Majority Leader of the Senate Republican Caucus. Grothman previously held the post of Assistant Minority Leader when the Senate Republicans were a 15 to 18 minority in the State Senate. After winning four seats in Tuesday’s election, the Republicans will have a 19 to 14 majority.
As the Assistant Majority Leader, Grothman will have the responsibility to assist the Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) in developing the party’s agenda, communicating it to the public, and helping run the party’s 2012 elections.
“I was honored to serve as Assistant Minority Leader for the past two years and participating in a campaign in which we defeated four incumbent Democrat Senators for the first time in 70 years was rewarding,” said Grothman. “As Assistant Majority Leader, I look forward to improving Wisconsin’s business climate and restoring faith in our government.”
Grothman was nominated by Senator Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center) and Senator-Elect Terry Moulton (R-Eau Claire).
