COLUMBUS (AP) - Democrats in the Ohio Senate have picked new leaders after two members stepped from their caucus roles to pursue statewide offices next year.

Sen. Edna Brown of Toledo is moving up to minority whip, a job held by Sen. Nina Turner of Cleveland. Turner is vying for secretary of state.
