When I was elected Chairman almost five years ago, I was told it was a “thankless” job. But ever since announcing I am stepping down, you have overwhelmed me with your thanks!
Now, please allow me to turn it around and thank YOU!
To our VOTERS across the state, thank you for electing great Republicans into office!
To our ELECTED OFFICIALS, thank you for working so hard to improve the lives of all citizens!
To our DONORS, thank you for helping us raise $10 million to support the election battles we’ve fought for 5 years!
To our 117 STATE GOP COMMITTEE MEMBERS from every county, thank you for thoughtfully governing our Party and staying focused on winning!
To my fellow RNC MEMBERS, thank you for your partnership in fighting the good fight in all 50 states!
To my WSRP staff, thank you for your hard work, humor and hope which gave me daily joy!
And I thank you, gracious God for giving all of us this important work and the strength to carry on.
Today, I pass the gavel to a capable new Chairman, Caleb Heimlich, who will take this healthy Party successfully into the future. Please support him as you have supported me. I sign off with great optimism…
