Frederick Launches Campaign for GOP Chair
The Potomac News reported today that Del. Jeffrey M. Frederick (R-Prince William) will run for chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia.
Frederick, 32, and his wife, Amy, have been considering the move for several weeks. In a conversation last week, Frederick said the party needs young leadership who can bolster its finances, organizational skills and outreach efforts.
Frederick is also Hispanic, which could help change the face of the party as it seeks to stem recent losses in increasingly diverse Northern Virginia.
The GOP central committee will gather in May to elect a chairman for a full term. It's unclear whether the current chairman, John H. Hager, plans to seek reelection.
