And the next Senate Minority Leader will be...

With last week's resignation of Bill Finkbeiner as Senate Minority Leader, it's time to speculate on who'll succeed him.

Word on the street is that Senator Jim Honeyford (15th LD), who The Fink's second in command, and widely expected to be next in line, is not going put his name forward. Senator Mike Hewitt (16th LD), the current Republican Whip (3rd in the chain of leadership), supposedly has the votes sewn up.

We'll find out this week when the Republican caucus meets.
