Official statement of Gary Emineth resigning

As the AP reported last night, North Dakota Republican chairman Gary Emineth is stepping down. Here is his official statement. Whom do you think the Republicans should get to be their next leader?

I have decided to step down as North Dakota Republican Party Chairman.

I have been blessed to serve in this capacity for the past 3 years. As a volunteer the time requirements are significant, and I have come to a place where I feel I cannot give the time I believe is required to serve in this capacity.

The party is poised to have a landslide election this fall, however it won’t happen if complacency sets in and North Dakotans don’t stand up and say, "It’s time to take back Washington."

Carma Hansen will serve as the interim state chairman until the next state committee meeting, scheduled later this month. At that time an election will be held to finish my unexpired term. If any of you are interested in this position please get involved, there is no time like the present.

Please stay in touch and thanks for your support.
