Former Congresswoman Jennifer Dunn passed away last night. Known as a trailblazer, she served as Chair of the WA GOP, and was the first woman to serve on the House Republican leadership team. In 1998, Dunn challenged Dick Armey for Majority Leader -- the first woman to seek this post.
From a personal perspective, I met Dunn in 1999. At the time, I would have guessed she was forty years old. She passed away at the age of 66, still too young, but she didn't look a day over fifty.
She is remembered as a class act.
