The Republican Party of Virginia has released today that their resigning Executive Director Dave Rexrode will be replaced by the GOP ED from North Dakota, Anthony Reedy.
Reedy, a graduate of Virginia Tech, comes back to Virginia with both executive and convention experience. Experience that is important because Virginia Republicans face a contested convention for both their lieutenant governor and attorney general nominees this May.
Both the House of Delegates and State Senate Caucuses are on board with the selection according to party sources.
RPV Chairman Pat Mullins gave the following statement:
“It is my pleasure to announce that I have selected Anthony Reedy to be the new Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia. Anthony is currently the Executive Director of the Republican Party of North Dakota, where he established himself as an outstanding leader.
“He also has deeps roots in Virginia, working with state and Federal campaigns here in the Commonwealth. His experience in organizing grassroots, winning statewide campaigns, and organizing conventions will be invaluable in our effort to hold the Executive Branch and House of Delegates in November.”
RPV Executive Director Anthony Reedy issued the following statement:
“I want to thank Chairman Mullins for the opportunity to return to my home state of Virginia. He and Dave Rexrode have built an incredible organization across the Commonwealth, and I’m excited to join the team and help lead RPV to victory in November.”
