2 foes of Georgia Senate GOP leaders lose committee posts

ATLANTA (AP) — Republican leaders in the Georgia state Senate are stripping two of their internal opponents of committee chair posts. Republican Burt Jones of Jackson lost a challenge to Senate President Pro Tem Butch Miller of Gainesville in Republican leadership elections in November. Now he's also lost his position as chair of the Insurance and Labor Committee with Tuesday's announcement of committee assignments by Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan. Republican Sen. Brandon Beach of Alpharetta led Transportation Committee in the previous term. Beach, who had supported Jones’ challenge, will also not lead any of the state Senate’s 26 committees over the coming two years.
