AP reports that GOP lawmakers did not remove Sen. Scott Bundgaard from his leadership position during a caucus meeting today:

Scott Bundgaard remains majority leader of the Arizona Senate after a closed caucus of Republicans met amid controversy over his involvement in an alleged domestic violence incident.

Bundgaard and most other senators leaving the room after 90 minutes would say little other than to confirm that he remains majority leader.

However, Senate Ethics Committee Chairman Ron Gould expressed disappointment that Bundgaard remains in his position. Gould on Monday had said Bundgaard should step down from his leadership post at least temporarily.

Bundgaard still faces a Senate ethics probe.
