Ed Murray Resigns from Senate Leadership Role
Sen. Ed Murray has resigned as leader of the Senate Democrats following his election as mayor of Seattle.
Murray announced Friday that while he was giving up his leadership role, he wasn't yet resigning from the Senate in order to continue to represent the 43rd District during the special session that started on Thursday.
Sen. David Frockt, D-Seattle has been named interim leader to represent the caucus until Senate Democrats meet later this month to elect a permanent leader.
Murray won the mayoral contest with 54 percent of the vote over current Mayor Mike McGinn, who formally conceded Thursday.
