Gronstal receives another term as majority leader

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Democrat Michael Gronstal has been given another term as majority leader in the Iowa Senate.

Fellow Senate Democrats chose to keep Gronstal as leader, despite tough losses under him during the November 2nd election.

The party lost six Statehouse seats and clings to power by the narrowest of margins.

Gronstal says he'll quickly begin bargaining with Gov.-elect Terry Branstad over an agenda when lawmakers convene in January.

Gronstal says he will block any efforts to move toward a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
