BREAKING : Tom Ross - The Next Chairman of the State GOP

Tom Ross, currently the Chairman of the Wilmington Republican Party, will be running for State Chairman of the Delaware Republican Party.

Tom just sent out the announcement. He let the State Executive Committee know last night. To my knowledge he will be unopposed for the position.

I can't think of a better person for the job. I have known Tom for years. In spite of some wrangling when I ran for State Senate in 2006, we remain great friends.

More importantly, he is a very libertarian-oriented, inclusive, grassroots Republican who has, as long as I have known him, been about accountable limited government in Delaware. He is practical on issues with no ideological axes to grind.

When I heard about Terry Strine stepping down Tom was the first person I thought about and I certainly hoped he would go for it. He is going to make an excellent state chair and will get the party on track and growing again. This is a huge step forward for Delaware Republicans.

Hell of an endorsement Tyler. I will take your word for it.

Thanks, Alan. Hopefully you can meet Tom in the days ahead. He will be bringing a lot of good people together to get things going so at the very least we have a functioning two-party system in Delaware.
