State Democrats re-elect Dwight Pelz as state chairman; follows GOP’s re-election of Kirby Wilbur as chair
Washington Democrats have re-elected Dwight Pelz to another two-year term as state chairman, following an election cycle that saw his party’s slate win the governor’s race for the eight-straight term. Democratic candidates also won all but one statewide executive office (Republican Kim Wyman won the secretary of state job).
Pelz had no opponent, the party said in a news release.
The Democrats’ vote follows the state Republican Party’s re-election of Kirby Wilbur as state chairman a few weeks ago. Wilbur, a former talk-radio host first elected in 2011, faced two challengers and won on a second ballot.
