Democrats, Republicans gather to vote on leaders for 2015

Senate Democrats and House Republicans will keep most of their leadership team in place, but speculation continues about if and how the Senate majority coalition caucus will be organized after Republican gains in the upper chamber gave it an outright majority.

In the House, Speaker Frank Chopp. D-Seattle, and Majority Leader Pat Sullivan, D-Covington, will continue to lead the majority Democrats. Other House Democratic leaders: Majority Caucus Chair Rep. Eric Pettigrew, D-Seattle; Majority Whip Rep. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim; and Majority Floor Leader Rep. Kris Lytton, D-Anacortes.

Rep. Dan Dan Kristiansen, R-Snohomish, will stay on as leader of minority Republicans, a group that is expected to have more influence after gaining four seats. Other House Republican leaders: Deputy Leader Rep. Joel Kretz, R-Wauconda; Caucus Chair Rep. Shelly Short, R-Addy; Floor Leader Rep. J.T. Wilcox, R-Yelm; Whip Rep. Paul Harris, R-Vancouver; Assistant Floor Leader Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley; and, Assistant Floor Leader Rep. Matt Manweller, R-Ellensburg.
