“I am honored to have the support of my fellow members of the Republican National Committee and I look forward to working with the RNC’s Executive Committee to help our Republican candidates across the country achieve victory in 2011 and 2012," said Republican Party of Louisiana Chairman Roger Villere.  "Most importantly, I'm eager to help Chairman Priebus position our party to take back the White House and put an end to Barack Obama's failed big-government agenda."

Louisiana National Committeewoman and RNC Vice-Chairman Ruth Ulrich congratulated Chairman Villere on his election saying:
"I am absolutely thrilled to have two Louisianians serving on the RNC Executive Committee.  Chairman Villere has clearly demonstrated his ability to help Republicans win elections here in Louisiana and the RNC will benefit greatly from his insights and experiences."
 Villere was first elected chairman of the LA GOP in 2004 and was re-elected in 2006, 2008, and 2010.  In 2004 Republicans held 1 of 7 non-federal statewide offices, had 4 members of the United States House of Representatives, and had not elected a Republican to the United States Senate in more than 100 years.  Republicans were in the minority in both chambers of the state legislature with 37 seats in the State House and 16 seats in the State Senate.
