Wash. House Republicans name new leaderApril 27, 2013 @ 1:27 pm
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - House Republicans have unanimously elected Rep. Dan Kristiansen as their new leader.
Kristiansen was named Saturday, one day before the regular 105-day legislative session was set to adjourn, though a special session is expected.
The Snohomish Republican replaces Rep. Richard DeBolt, who stepped down as caucus leader last week due to health problems. Kristiansen is 50 years old and was first elected to the House in 2002.
