Stivers chosen as president of Ky. Senate

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republicans in the Kentucky Senate have chosen Robert Stivers of Manchester to be the chamber's new president.

Stivers, who has been GOP floor leader, and independent Sen. Bob Leeper of Paducah ran for the post. The new president was selected Tuesday.

The post was left open when longtime Senate President David Williams left office to accept a judicial appointment in southern Kentucky.

Stivers won't officially become president until January.
