From the Maryland Senate Republican Slate:
Today, Republican State Senators elected Senator Nancy Jacobs (R-34th) to serve as the Minority Leader and Senator E.J. Pipkin (R-36th) to serve as the Minority Whip for the 2011 legislative session.
“I am honored and humbled by the support of my colleagues in electing me Minority Leader,” said Jacobs. “While there are many difficult issues we need to address during this legislative session, I look forward working with my fellow senators to ensure Maryland’s success.”
“We have significant budgetary challenges facing us in the 2011 legislative session,” Pipkin said, “fortunately I feel that our caucus has a united sense of mission and passion in facing these challenges. I’m ready to get to work.”
