The regular quarterly meeting of the Washington State Republican Party’s state committee met in Moses Lake on Saturday, January 20. The budget was adopted and by law housekeeping changes adopted. The main topic of discussion was the election of a new chairman, prompted by the recent resignation of Susan Hutchison which will be effective on February 4.
In an overwhelming vote of support (70%) Caleb Heimlich was voted the new WSRP Chairman. It was an emotional meeting as we wished our outgoing chair Susan Hutchison only the best and we voted unanimously to consider her WSRP Chair Emeritus. Susan brought back respect and honor to our state Party, something that had been lacking for many, many years!
Caleb was home-schooled. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Hillsdale College and attended the 2010, 2012 and 2016 state conventions. He has served on the staff at WSRP for 7 years, and as Executive Director for 5 years under Chairman Hutchison. He will seamlessly take over her reins, and we are lucky to have him as he could easily have obtained a position in many other states.
