Babbitt & Bolin: Linked by the length of their terms (access required)

Democrats Bruce Babbitt and Wes Bolin represent the long and short of Arizona’s gubernatorial reigns.

Bolin, born Harvey Wesley Bolin in 1908, set a longevity record as Arizona secretary of state, serving almost 29 years, from 1949 to 1977. And when Raul Castro resigned as governor on Oct. 20, 1977, to become U.S. ambassador to Argentina, Bolin moved up to the Governor’s Office.
