“Chairman Curry believes that Republicans must continue to have a strong voice not only in the political process, but also in framing the debate for local, state and national issues which builds the foundation of our party,” said Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. “His unwavering commitment to our principles and his dedication to improving how we communicate our message, has earned him another term as leader of our party.”
“As Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, accountability and transparency in how funds are managed is critical to the strength of any organization, whether they be taxpayer dollars or political contributions,” said CFO Jeff Atwater. “Chairman Lenny Curry has proven leadership in securing and allocating much needed resources to support local efforts across the board. He has my full support as Chairman.”
RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry is up for election to a two-year term after serving the remaining 15 months of the late Chairman Dave Bitner’s term. Eligible voting members of the RPOF include the chairs, state committeeman and state committeewoman from each of Florida’s 67 counties, the Florida Republican Congressional Delegation, the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives and ten of their appointees from each of their respective bodies, and ten appointees of Governor Rick Scott.
