Several Local GOP Chairs Ask State Chair to Resign

March 20, 2009

(AP) - Nine local Republican Party chairs representing some of Virginia's largest localities joined the call for state Republican chairman Jeff Frederick to resign.

Frederick's reply is the same he gave legislative GOP leaders, five Republican Virginia congressmen and three-fourths of the committee that will vote on his ouster: No.

The Republican Party's state central committee has scheduled an April 4 meeting to decide whether to remove him 10 months into a four-year term.

Frederick said in a statement the party issued Thursday that the nine chairs represent only about 7 percent of the roughly 130 local units across Virginia.

Among those signing the letter were the leaders of local Republican committees in Fairfax, Chesterfield, Henrico, Stafford, Hanover and Rockingham counties and the cities of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk.
