Former KIRO Anchor To Lead Washington State Republican Party

Susan Hutchison, a former anchor for Seattle CBS affiliate KIRO, has been elected the Washington State Republican Party Chair.

“People are tremendously excited about the future with me leading the party,” Hutchison told Seattle FOX affiliate KCPQ.  “They see a change, a dynamic change, and I hope that I can fulfill their hopes.” You can watch the interview after the jump.

Hutchison worked at KIRO as an anchor from 1981 until 2002. She sued KIRO in 2003 for age, race and gender discrimination after she said she was replaced by a younger Asian-American woman. The lawsuit was settled in 2005. Hutchison ran for King County Executive in 2009.

According to KIRO, “Hutchison says the party is “nearly broke,” has a “useless” website and a get-out-the-vote operation that is spotty in some places and ineffective in others.”
