The state Senate Republican Caucus on Wednesday unanimously selected Sen. Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, to lead state Senate Republicans in 2012.

Huff, who represents parts of San Bernardino, Los Angeles and Orange counties, was selected to replace state Sen. Bob Dutton, R-Rancho Cucamonga, as the state Senate Republican Leader.

“I’d like to thank my Senate Republican colleagues for their unwavering support and look forward to working with Majority Leader Darrell Steinberg and the governor on the state budget and other issues facing California,” Huff said in a news release.

“The governor has indicated that he will work with Republicans when possible and Senate Republicans are open to compromise and crafting true, bipartisan solutions.”
