Kimberly Yee speaks to supporters on Nov. 6, 2018.

Republican Kimberly Yee has been elected Arizona's treasurer and will oversee the state's estimated $15 billion investment portfolio and banking services.

Yee is the Republican majority leader of Arizona's Senate. She faced Democratic property-tax attorney Mark Manoil in Tuesday's vote.

Yee has promised to be a watchdog for taxpayers and describes herself as a fiscal conservative with a record of cutting unnecessary government spending.

Manoil has stressed the need for cities to build wealth locally and not be subject to the whims of Wall Street.

He has called for the building of a public community banking system in Arizona to generate affordable borrowing options for college students and others who do not have easy credit access.
