Following Historic Victories, Chairman Brad Courtney Seeks Re-Election
[Madison, Wis.] – Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Brad Courtney announced to his Executive Committee that he will be running for another term. After several successful election cycles under his leadership, Courtney told members of the Executive Committee:
“This year the future of our country was at stake. We seized this opportunity to re-elect a true citizen legislator in Senator Ron Johnson, elect Mike Gallagher to the 8th Congressional District, and put a Republican back in the White House to fix the mess of the last eight years and save the Supreme Court for generations to come.”
Governor Scott Walker endorsed Brad Courtney with the following statement:
“Brad Courtney is a good friend, and under his leadership, the Republican Party of Wisconsin has developed into a highly-regarded political operation with a strong record of success. Today, we hold several statewide offices, historic majorities in the state legislature, and – for the first time since 1984 – Wisconsin just voted to put a Republican in the White House. Without question, Brad is the most accomplished chairman in state history. He has my full confidence, and I can’t think of a better person to lead our Party through this next election cycle.”
Brad Courtney has been Chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin for almost six years. During this time, Republicans have fought and won historic elections and policy battles. Republicans hold record majorities in the state legislature and not only re-elected Ron Johnson to the U.S. Senate with a strong Republican delegation, but a Republican Presidential Nominee carried Wisconsin for the first time since 1984.
