CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The acting chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party is seeking to become the party’s next official chairman.
Roman Stauffer began serving as acting chairman earlier this month after Melody Potter resigned from the position to focus on her family.
“I have worked in the trenches of conservative politics and campaigns, helping elect Republicans across the state. My experience is all encompassing, from College Republicans to Young Republicans, to precinct worker to local county chairman, to guiding statewide campaigns to historic victories, to serving in the West Virginia Republican Party’s leadership,” Stauffer said in a press release Friday.
Stauffer most recently served as campaign manager for Gov. Jim Justice’s reelection campaign.
“I am the best person to guide our Party to transition into this next chapter,” he added.
Stauffer will serve as acting chairman until the state GOP’s winter meeting in March.
