He may be the&nbsp;one state senator who can say he has literally worked with each side of the aisle in Frankfort.</p><p>Now, he’s hoping to convince Senate Republicans to make him the next president of the chamber, because he has been a loyal GOP caucus member and budget chairman.</p> Fri, 23 Nov 2012 14:55:00 +0000 Kenny Colston 2572 at http://wfpl.org Bob Leeper, an Independent, Makes Case to be Next Kentucky Senate President
