The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — Senate President Richard Finan was re-elected Wednesday to the most powerful position in the Senate for the 124th Ohio Legislature, which is to convene in early January.

        Mr. Finan, a Cincinnati Republican, has been Senate president since 1997. Term limits require him to leave the Senate after completing his term in two years.

        Republicans control the Senate 21-12 and maintained that majority in the Nov. 7 election, pending an appeal of one race.

        The Republican Senate caucus also elected Bruce Johnson of Columbus as president pro tempore, Jay Hottinger of Newark as assistant president pro tempore, and Randy Gardner of Bowling Green as majority whip.
