Kentucky Senate Majority Leader Robert Stivers is already getting plenty of vocal support as the likely successor to David Williams as the next Senate President just days after Williams said he was resigning to take a circuit judge position.

Stivers told The Courier-Journal that he is definitely interested in seeking the chamber's presidency position and he thinks he has the votes to win.

Stivers, who has been majority floor leader since 2009, faces re-election for his District 25 Senate seat against Democratic challenger Ralph Hoskins.

Even though the position won't be elected until January, Republicans and Democrats alike were assuming that Stivers would be getting the job.

Sen. Dan Seum, the Republican caucus chairman, said they expect to informally choose Williams' successor during meetings in December in Frankfort.
