A day after Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno announced she was stepping down, the caucus has chosen a new leader.
Bill Brady, R-Bloomington, will be the next Senate minority leader.
Radogno says the ultimate decision was unanimous, though Brady did initially have competition.
Brady emerged as an ally of Gov. Bruce Rauner this spring. He took an active role in pushing for more concessions from Democrats in the so-called “grand bargain" negotiations.
