State Senator Ed Murray (D-Seattle) was elected Senate Majority Leader today:

Murray was the prime sponsor of Washington’s marriage equality law, which voters upheld this year through Referendum 74. With his election, he becomes the first openly gay caucus leader in state history and the only openly gay state Senate leader currently serving in the nation.

It's been a pretty big year for Ed, to say the least.

Now we'll have to wait on the outcome of the Benton/Probst race to see if the Dems can retain control of the Senate.
