In a surprise move, the Republican State Committee of Massachusetts chose the most conservative of three candidates as the new Republican national committeewoman last week.

Seventy-two members of the state committee voted last week for Chanel Prunier over the more moderate state Rep. Sheila Harrington and state GOP committee member Helen Hatch for the party committee post.

In a state where centrist Republicans usually prevail over conservatives — notably the present Senate GOP nominee Gabriel Gomez — Prunier's victory was a surprise considering her conservative stands on social and economic issues.

Many GOP observers agreed that, as the youngest of the contenders and a single woman, Prunier might appeal to voters normally not disposed to the Republican Party. Prunier succeeds National Committeewoman Kerry Healey, who resigned to become president of Babson College.
