Washington State Republican Party Chairman Caleb Heimlich said Monday that he is stepping down.
Heimlich, 37, wrote in a message to state Republican officials obtained by The Seattle Times on Monday that while it has been a tremendous honor to serve as president for more than five years, he has accepted a job with a national grassroots organization that It will provide a better quality of life for your family, reported the newspaper .
His resignation is effective August 12, when the state committee of the Republican Party will meet in Olympia to elect a new chairman.
"After 12 1/2 years working in the Washington State Republican Party, it's time for a change," Heimlich wrote in the message to state Republican officials, citing the drive from his Pierce County home to Bellevue as a reason for the change.
Heimlich was cast in 2018, following former television news anchor Susan Hutchison.
Before taking the top job, Heimlich had worked for the state party since 2011 as political director and chief executive.
Heimlich's departure comes amid statewide GOP fights. Republicans now hold no statewide elected office, and the party lost one congressional seat and Legislature seats in last year's midterm elections.
