New Chairman of State GOP

Longtime State Republican Leader Steve Robertson is now chairman of the State GOP.

He was chosen on June 2, 2007 in Frankfort, Ky.

Robertson has worn many hats for the GOP over the years, including stints as the party’s political director and organizational director.

Robertson will step down as the Commissioner of the Governor’s Office for local development so he can focus on helping Fletcher earn a second term in the November election.

Robertson was nominated for the job by Governor Fletcher and U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell.

The GOP’s central committee unanimously approved the nomination on June 2.
