villereRoger Villere has been elected as Vice Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Villere, who also serves as Chairman of the Republican Party of Louisiana, was elected on Friday in Tampa, Florida. Villere replaces Alec Poitevint of Georgia, who is retiring after successfully organizing the 2012 Republican National Convention.

 

 

"I look forward to serving Republican voters in this new capacity and helping to grow the Party and win elections across America," Villere said. "Our focus for the next two months is to replace Barack Obama and save our country and way of life," he said.

Villere served as a member of the Rules Committee for the national convention in Tampa. His tenure as chairman in Louisiana has included Republican takeovers of all seven statewide offices including Governor, and gaining GOP majorities in the Louisiana Senate, House, BESE and PSC.

Villere won despite being criticized for the handling of the recent Louisiana Republican primary which resulted in a rebellion by Ron Paul supporters.
