Frederick Names Rensin GOP Finance Chair

Tim Craig

Despite the attempted coup to oust him as chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, Del. Jeffrey M. Frederick (R-Prince William) moved today to strengthen the state party's fundraising efforts.

Frederick announced today he is appointing David K. Rensin, one the top GOP donors in Virginia, to be the party's new finance chairman.

Rensin, a technology mogul, has donated more than $1.5 million to GOP candidates in Virginia since 2007. He was the single largest GOP donor during the 2007 campaigns for the House and Senate, according to the Virginia Public Access Project.

Rensin, president of Herndon-based RealityMobile, has strong ties to the conservative wing of the party. He is also Frederick's top donor, giving him $120,000 over the past two years, according to VPAP.

"I can't express enough how excited I am that my good friend and dedicated supporter of our Republican team, Dave Rensin, has accepted this critical role within our Party," Frederick said. "The 2009 elections will be momentous both for the future of Virginia and our nation."

Rensin will replace Walter M. Curt, a wealthy businessman who stepped down as finance chairman in January.
