WASHINGTON — Texas Democratic Rep. Charlie Gonzalez has been elected to lead the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in the next Congress.

The six-term lawmaker from San Antonio says he was elected by the all-Democratic caucus of 22 members, which includes one member awaiting a recount to see whether he'll return next session.

Five new Hispanic Republicans were voted to the House and one to the Senate in the Nov. 2 elections. But Republican Hispanics formed their own group in 2003.

Gonzalez says he'll work with the Republican group on issues such as immigration.
