Just Like The 80s--Both Parties Lead By Women
Dunn would later serve our district in congress. Marchioro became a well regarded political consultant. Although, they were polar opposites, it seemed like the two had mutual respect for one another. The real irony is that Marchioro and Dunn died within a week of each other in 2007. Marchioro had a long bout with cancer. Dunn was just 66 when she died suddenly of a pulmonary embolism. Both were the first women chairs of their respected parties.
While both Marchioro and Dunn served their parties during the same time frame (1981-1992), Susan Hutchison has served as Republican chair since 2013. Tina Podlodowski was elected last Satuday. Just like the previous pair, their styles represent their parties. Unlike the other two, it is doubtful that the two would ever find common ground. Podlodowski wants to work to get Democrats elected in every county in the state. Hutchison is one of the country's most outspoken Trump supportors.
