Sen. Niehaus to get promoted to No. 3 spot

Sen. Tom Niehaus is expected to fill a vacancy in Ohio Senate leadership, getting promoted to majority floor leader.

Senate Republicans plan a caucus meeting Wednesday to decide whether Niehaus of New Richmond should succeed Sen. Randy Gardner, who is getting appointed to a vacant seat in the Ohio House.

Niehaus' appointment would rank him third behind Senate President Bill Harris and Sen. Jeff Jacobson of Dayton, who is president pro tem. The leadership post pays $81,163, about $20,500 above the annual base salary.

"I'm not aware of anyone running against me at this point,'' Niehaus said today.
