Washington Republicans Have Turnover at the Top

August 20, 2013

The Washington State Republican Party is the latest state GOP organization suddenly tasked with electing a new party chairman.

The former state chairman, Kirby Wilbur, announced his resignation suddenly in late July. He left the party to work for a conservative group called Young America’s Foundation, per The Seattle Times.
The top two contenders to succeed him are the interim chairwoman, Luanne Van Werven, and former TV anchor Susan Hutchison.

Grays Harbor County GOP State Committeeman Jim Walsh, Clark County Republicans Operations Director Christian Berrigan and Benton County precinct committee officer Lloyd Becker are also contenders for the position, according to The Seattle Times.

“The person everyone assumes will win is Luanne Van Werven,” former WSRP Chairman Chris Vance said. “Conventional wisdom is that she’s got the votes already at the state committee.”
