The Washington State Republican Party has elected a Puyallup resident as its next chairman.
Caleb Heimlich, the party’s current executive director and chief of staff, was elected at a Washington State committee meeting in Moses Lake on one ballot. Heimlich will replace Susan Hutchison who announced in January that she was stepping down.
Heimlich has worked in the party since 2011 and also ran for a state House of Representatives seat in East Pierce County in 2008.
Heimlich beat out three other Pierce County residents — Tacoma restaurateur Monique Trudnowski, Pierce County Republican Party Chairman Marty McClendon and former Exeecutive Director of the WSRP Lance Henderson in 1994.
