Eye On Olympia

Lisa Brown still the top Senate Democrat…

Senate Democrats re-elected Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, to the same post at a meeting this weekend in Sea-Tac. Under a variety of scenarios (minority, slight majority, and big majority), Brown has headed up the Senate Democrats since 2002.

Also re-elected: Tracey Eide, D-Federal Way, as the D’s floor leader.

But with Harriet Spanel, D-Bellingham, retiring this year, the Democratic caucus chair job now goes to Ed Murray, D-Seattle.
