Thursday, Jan. 25th
BREAKFAST BRIEFING:
"THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S CONGRESS: MID-TERM REPORT"
with Representative Jennifer Dunn (R-WA),
Stanford B.A., 1963

Republican Congresswoman Jennifer Dunn from Bellevue, Washington, was initially elected to Congress in 1992, a year in which her party lost every major race in her state but her own (which she won with 60 percent of the vote). Her efforts in the 1994 election cycle, however, helped not just to reelect herself but six additional Republicans in her delegation, reversing the results from 1992.

Dunn, who serves on the House Ways and Means Committee and the Oversight Committee, fits a more traditional than contemporary pattern for women office holders, according to The Almanac of American Politics. Instead of entering politics from academia, the law or issue activism, she graduated from college, married and had two children before becoming involved as a campaign volunteer. As her sons grew up, Dunn got involved in politics, serving full time as the Washington State Republican Party Chairman from 1981 until 1992, as well as Vice Chairman of the Republican National Committee and Chairman of all the Republican state party chairmen nationwide from 1988-91.

Representative Dunn has been cast as a moderate in the politics of her home state, largely because she has defended abortion rights against strong intraparty opposition. In Congress, she has voted for NAFTA and GATT, and during 1995 was generally supportive of House Speaker Gingrich (R-GA).

Prior to her jobs with the Republican Party, Dunn worked for the King County (in the Puget Sound region of Washington) government and earlier as an IBM systems engineer designing and programming computer applications for small business. She has been a US delegate to United Nations' conferences on the status of women in 1984-85 and in 1990. Her Stanford B.A. is in English literature.

Time: 7:45 to 9:00 a.m.
