Garcia’s widow sworn in Wednesday to Arizona Senate

The Arizona Senate convenes an informal session Wednesday to swear in the appointed replacement for the late Sen. Jorge Garcia and to commemorate the Tucson lawmaker.

Maria Garcia will take the oath after being appointed by the Pima County Board of Supervisors to serve the final two months of her late husband’s term.

Jorge Garcia died of heart failure in October.
