LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky's Republican state senators have chosen a new leader.

The republican caucus chose GOP Floor Leader Robert Stivers to be the next Senate President.

Stivers, of Manchester, replaces former Senate President David Williams, who resigned to take a circuit judge position.

Stivers' position won't become official until a vote of the full chamber in January.

Independent Senator Bob Leeper of Paducah was also seeking the job.
