The NCGOP convention should be interesting this summer. Chairman Robin Hayes has announced his plans to not seek reelection to the post. Vice-chairman Wayne King has taken a position with newly-elected congressman Mark Meadows (R-11th).
Former legislator Glen Bradley has announced his intention to pursue the vice-chairman post. I have heard from activists of all stripes curious about Hayes’s silence about reelection. Today’s announcement should generate a good bit of discussion in the state’s GOP circles. I tend to believe that Hayes’s announcement was meant to clear a path for an establishment-anointed chairman candidate to step into the spotlight.
I guess King COULD run for chairman. But how would THAT work — a paid aide to a sitting congressman serving as party chairman?
