PHOENIX (AP) - Legislative Democrats hold closed-door caucuses Thursday to pick leaders for the next two years.

Democrats picked up additional seats in both the House and Senate in Tuesday's general election but remain the minority in both chambers.

House Minority Leader Chad Campbell was re-elected to the House and is running to be his caucus' leader again.

However, Senate Democrats have a vacancy to fill in their top leadership post. Senate Minority Leader David Schapira ran unsuccessfully for Congress instead of running for re-election to the Legislature.
