Georgia Republican Party Chairman Sue Everhart Formally Announces Campaign for Re-Election

Georgia Republican Party Chairman Sue P. Everhart today formally announced that she will run for re-election as Party Chairman at the State Convention in Macon in May.

“I wanted to reassure Republicans throughout the state that I will remain on the job until we take back the White House in 2012,” Everhart said. “We swept the state this election cycle, but a well-funded Obama campaign and energized Democratic get-out-the-vote effort will mean that the State Party will need an experienced Chairman in place to keep the gains we made on November 2. I am confident I am the best person to do that,” she added.

When Chairman Everhart first took office in 2007, one of her main goals was to build on the Republican majority through sophisticated and extensive training and to strengthen grassroots networks. Her personal experience in grassroots politics coupled with her vision for its development in Georgia led to a focused volunteer effort that resulted in landmark wins for Republicans.

Under the leadership of Chairman Sue Everhart, the Georgia Republican Party has grown its majority to an unprecedented level. In 2008, Georgia went against the national tide by delivering for John McCain and re-elected U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss. In 2010, Republicans swept every constitutional office, re-elected U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, and added to the majorities of the U.S. House and Georgia General Assembly.

Sue is a proven leader, determined grassroots advocate and a seasoned fundraiser. With critical events such as redistricting and a presidential election on the horizon, Georgia Republicans need experience at the helm of the GAGOP. Proven leadership will make the difference in 2012.

In seeking her final term, Sue’s primary focus is to move forward with the accomplishments of the Party under her chairmanship and to build a complete and lasting majority in our state. Her plan, including a continued focus on expanding the reach and capabilities of the GAGOP’s social media and IT structure as well as efforts to switch local elected officials to the Republican Party, is a stepping stone to create an enduring era of Republican leadership in Georgia.

Sue Everhart, a former banker, is a long-time Republican activist who served as Chairman of the Sixth District Republican Party and First Vice-Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party before being elected as Georgia GOP Party Chairman in 2007. In 2007 and 2010, she was selected as one of the 100 Most Influential Georgians. In addition, Sue was chosen as one of 10 women in the United States to be honored as a “Woman of Achievement” by the RNC in 2009. Currently, Chairman Everhart serves on both the RNC Rules and Ethics Committees as well as the Committee on Arrangements for the 2012 GOP National Convention. In addition to her political involvement, Everhart is active in civic organizations in her community.
