Terrance Carroll New Dem Assistant Leader in House

Rep. Terrance Carroll, D-Denver, was elected by fellow House Democrats to be the chamber's Assistant Majority Leader Tuesday.

Carroll, who now chairs the Judiciary Committee, edged Rep. Paul Weissman, D-Louisville, in the race for the leadership slot.

House Democrats needed to choose a new Assistant Majority Leader after Rep. Michael Garcia, D-Aurora, resigned earlier in the week.
