About Rose McConnell Long, U.S. Senator

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_McConnell_Long

Rose McConnell Long (April 8, 1892 – May 27, 1970) was a United States Senator and the wife of Huey Long. She was Louisiana's first female senator.

Long was born in Greensburg, in Decatur County, Indiana. She met Huey Long after she won a cake baking contest that he had organized. Rose and Huey were married in 1913. After Huey's death in 1935, Rose was appointed to serve in the United States Senate. Rose won a special election on April 21, 1936, to serve the remaining months of her husband's term, but she declined to run for re-election for another six year term in November 1936. Because Hattie Caraway was already serving in the Senate at the time of Rose's election, it represented the first time that two women served simultaneously in that body.

She was the mother of Senator Russell B. Long as well as Rose McConnell Long McFarland of Boulder, Colorado, and Palmer Reid Long of Shreveport.
