Senator Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) was elected unanimously as Senate Republican Leader following a vote of the Senate Republican Caucus on their first day back in session, Wednesday, January 3rd.  Huff represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties.  He previously served as Republican Caucus Leader and Vice Chair of the Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee.

Huff was first elected to the State Assembly in 2004 after serving nine years on the Diamond Bar City Council, including two stints as Mayor. He was later elected to serve the 29th Senate District in 2008.

Huff succeeds Senator Bob Dutton (R-Inland Empire) who announced last December that he would be stepping down as minority leader. Facing his last year in the Senate, Dutton said in a statement that he would continue to work hard to lift unnecessary regulatory burdens.
