ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland Republican state senator says his party has chosen new Senate leadership.

Sen. David Brinkley said the state's Senate Republican Caucus chose Sen. E.J. Pipkin, R-Cecil, to be the new minority leader on Tuesday.

Pipkin had been serving as the Republican minority whip. He's moving into the minority leader position after Sen. Nancy Jacobs, R-Harford, stepped down from the position to consider running for other offices.

Sen. Edward Reilly, R-Anne Arundel, was chosen to be minority whip.
