NASHVILLE (AP) - Senate Democrats have re-elected Sen. Jim Kyle of Memphis as minority leader and Sen. Lowe Finney of Jackson as caucus chairman.

Democrats earlier this month lost six seats, leaving them with 7 of 33 members in the upper chamber of the General Assembly,

Kyle was elected Wednesday to his fifth two-year term as leader and Finney to his third as caucus chairman.

Senate Democrats also reappointed Sens. Douglas Henry of Nashville and Reginald Tate of Memphis to the fiscal review committee and named former Sen. Bob Rochelle of Lebanon to the Tennessee Registry of Election Finance.
