State GOP in Limbo

Anita Kumar

In the three weeks since Jeffrey M. Frederick was ousted as state GOP chairman, two of the 12 staff members at the Republican Party of Virginia have resigned.

Matthew Kandrach, who headed the party's field operations in Northern Virginia, and Gerry Scimeca, the party's communications direction, have left.

Others are waiting to see who will be selected as the new chairman this weekend.

The State Central Committee is expected to pick a leader Saturday morning. But party rules require the election of a chairman four weeks later at the Republican state convention May 30.

Frederick has said he will probably run for chairman again at the convention, but has not made any formal announcement.

In the meantime, the Republican party has continued to struggle. Just check out its most recent fundraising numbers.

The party had about $70,000 in its state and federal accounts as of March 31, while the Democratic party had more than $500,000.
