Kathleen Matthews, Marriott International’s Chief Global Communications and Public Affairs Officer, Planning to Run for Congress

by | Mar 5, 2015

Kathleen Matthews, Marriott International’s executive vice president and chief global communications and public affairs officer, and wife of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, is planning to run for the seat of Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), reports POLITICO.

Van Hollen, continued the POLITICO report, announced Wednesday that he’ll seek the seat being vacated by Sen. Barbara Mikulski.

A longtime resident of Chevy Chase, Matthews was a popular longtime anchor for WJLA-ABC7, then-owned by the family of POLITICO publisher Robert Allbritton. Matthews, currently abroad on business, has begun talking to Democratic activists and interviewing potential consultants, continued the POLITICO report, which added that “Matthews, who has long talked about running for office, advocated Marriott’s move toward more progressive policies, including sustainability and LGBT friendliness. She pushed the company to open a hotel in Haiti after the earthquake — Bill Clinton attended the opening last month.”
