Blunt retains US Senate leadership post

(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., AP) — U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt will remain in his leadership post in the Senate Republican caucus.

Blunt, of Missouri, is the vice chairman of the chamber’s Republican conference, which is the fifth-most senior position in the caucus. Blunt first won that position last December when he beat out Sen. Ron Johnson, of Wisconsin.

On Wednesday, Blunt pledged to advance “pro-growth, pro-jobs policies.”

Blunt previously served as a House Republican leader. He was elected to the Senate in 2010.
