Kimberly Yee has served as state treasurer of Arizona since 2019 and is next up for reelection in 2026. Before being elected treasurer, she served as an Arizona state senator from 2013–19, as Senate majority leader from 2017–19, and as a state representative from 2011–13. While leading the Senate, she was a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council and was active on its Tax and Fiscal Policy task force.

Prior to elected office, Yee worked in the administrations of two past governors and in the administration of former Arizona State Treasurer Dean Martin. In May 2021, she announced her candidacy for governor of Arizona but withdrew from the GOP primary in January 2022 to run for reelection as treasurer instead. Yee is the highest-ranking Republican woman to hold statewide elected office in Arizona and is also the first Chinese-American Republican woman to win a statewide office in the U.S.
