First female Arizona Senate majority leader in decades: ‘It took 44 years … it’s too long’

The current Senate majority leader, who happens to be female, invited the woman who last held that position to the Legislature this week.

There is only a 44-year gap between them.

In the four-plus decades since Sandra Day O’Connor served as the Senate’s No. 2, lots of male majority leaders have come and gone. But no women until Sen. Kimberly Yee, R-Phoenix, won the post this year.
