Jane M. Earll (born August 10, 1958) is former a Republican member of the Pennsylvania State Senate who has represented the 49th District since 1997. She announced her intention to retire from the Senate when her term expired in January 2013.[1]

Early career and personal life[edit]

In 2002, she was named to the PoliticsPA list of Best Dressed Legislators.[3]

Election Campaigns[edit]

Earll won election to the Senate against Democrat Buzz Andrezewski a year after losing a countywide race for District Attorney, and in re-election bids she faced down Democrats John Paul Jones, Tony Logue, and Cindy Purvis.

She was the Republican party's nominee for Lieutenant Governor on a ticket with Mike Fisher in 2002. The Pennsylvania Report described her as "an outstanding candidate for Lieutenant Governor" and said that she was "[w]ell-liked and respected on both sides of the aisle."[4] She and Fisher lost the election to Ed Rendell and Catherine Baker Knoll.
