Murray steps down as Senate Dem leader

OLYMPIA — Sen. and Seattle mayor-elect Ed Murray said he's dropping one of  his titles, that of Senate Democratic leader.

Murray said he was relinquishing that post and Sen. David Frockt, D-Seattle, was stepping in as interim leader for the special session. Murray will remain in the state Senate through the session, and announce a resignation date after that with enough time for a replacement to be selected before the regular session starts in January.
