Among the group of well wishers was local insider-turned-tech-entrepreneur Susanna Quinn, chief executive of Veluxe, who apparently also moonlights as a matchmaker. Quinn, who appeared with Garrett in the 2010 film “Below the Beltway,” was responsible for setting the actor and the anchor up.
In 2013, Quinn and Garrett, then on break from filming “House of Cards” in Baltimore, were out shopping for a suit Garrett could wear to a Preakness event with co-star Kevin Spacey. While browsing the District’s plethora of seersucker options, the 52-year-old actor asked Quinn if she knew any smart, single women. Her reply according to our source? “Yes, the smartest single woman alive: Dana Bash.”
Moments later Bash, 44, got a text message from Quinn: “Google Spencer Garrett and come over tonight.” The couple have been going strong ever since.
