ANCHORAGE- There is a new Senate minority leader for the Democrats.

Senate Democrats say in a release that Sen. Hollis French, a Democrat from Anchorage, is assuming the post this year.
Another Anchorage Democrat, Johnny Ellis, held the post last year. The transfer from Ellis to Hollis is part of an agreement that was first announced last year.
Ellis says he was honored to serve as minority leader last year, and supports French in the role this year.
French also is a Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.
The Alaska Legislature convenes in Juneau next Tuesday.
