Well, That Didn't Take Long: Pearce is President

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2010 at 4:03 PM

According to today's Arizona Capitol Times, the man who makes the U.S. Constitution look like a used paper towel, Sen. Russell Pearce, is now president of the Arizona Senate.

Sen. Russell Pearce will lead the Arizona Senate next year after colleagues elected him to be president of the chamber during a closed-door meeting Nov. 3, according to several inside sources. Pearce defeated Sen. Steve Pierce and Senators-elect Steve Yarbrough and John McComish. All four had been rounding up votes for months in anticipation of the leadership elections.
