ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The new Senate majority now has 12 members.

Sen. Gary Stevens of Kodiak has joined the majority, and will be chairman of the Senate's Education Committee. Stevens had been Senate president for the last four years when the bipartisan coalition held power.

New Senate President Charlie Huggins of Wasilla made the announcement Thursday in a release.

Going into Tuesday's elections, the Senate was comprised of 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans, with six Republicans joining Democrats to form the bipartisan majority. The GOP won at least 12 seats in the general election. Two other races are still too close to call.

Sen. Bert Stedman of Sitka is the only Republican coalition member who hasn't joined the new majority.
