OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Republicans in the Oklahoma Senate have elected their leadership team for the 2015 Legislature.

New and returning GOP senators were administered the oath of office on Tuesday and, without opposition, nominated Sen. Brian Bingman of Sapulpa for re-election as president pro tem of the Republican-controlled Senate.

Bingman announced that Sen. Mike Schulz of Altus will continue to serve as Majority Floor Leader for the 55th Legislature.
