It appears Republicans who run the Michigan Senate are settling on their next leader.
Sen. Randy Richardville of Monroe is expected to be elected as the new Senate majority leader next week. His tenure as leader would begin in January.
Richardville would replace Sen. Mike Bishop, who is term-limited and must leave the Senate at the end of this year.
Another possible candidate to become the next Republican leader, incoming state senator John Proos of St. Joseph, said Friday he will unite with colleagues behind Richardville.
Proos is now a state representative who will be new to the Senate next year.
Republicans will have a 26-12 edge over Democrats starting in 2011.
