Anne Hathaway was unanimously elected by the Indiana Republican Party's central committee to become state party chair, the first woman to hold that position.

The Indiana Republican Party has a new chair — and she’s making history in the job. The party’s central committee on Thursday unanimously elected Anne Hathaway to replace outgoing chair Kyle Hupfer.

Hathaway becomes the first woman to lead the Indiana Republican Party and only the second woman to lead a major party organization in state history.

She has worked in politics for decades, including running her own public affairs company in Indiana. She currently serves as the state’s national committeewoman on the Republican National Committee. And Hathaway also helps lead the Lugar Series, a program that has helped prepare hundreds of women to work in public service and politics.
