>>First GOP Woman Senate Majority
(Lehigh, PA) -- Republican State Senator Kim Ward is the General Assembly's first woman elected to serve as majority leader. Ward says she's honored to have been chosen and looks forward to working closer with her colleagues in the House on issues they can agree on and that are good for all of Pennsylvania. Ward's victory was not without a challenge as she was against state Senator Dave Argall, who has served more than 30-years in the House and Senate. The state Senate will reconvene for the 2021 to 2022 legislative session on January 5th.
