Angela ‘Bay’ Buchanan
In 1981, President Ronald Reagan appointed Bay Buchanan, then 32, to be Treasurer of the United States. She became the youngest person to ever hold the position.
In the following thirty years, Buchanan remained at the forefront of American politics. Working on six presidential campaigns and chairing three of them, hosting her own national radio and television shows, and authoring two books, her contribution to the current political landscape is undeniable. She was named one of George magazine’s top 20 women in politics, as well as the Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute’s 10 most influential women in America. In 2007, she was named the same Institute’s Woman of the Year.
After a career analyzing politics for CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, and Good Morning America, she now enjoys a new challenge in real estate, thriving as a recognizable native of Washington, D.C.
