The Republican State Leadership Committee President Chris Jankowski, on behalf of the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association, announced the 2013 RLGA Executive Committee.

“I’d like to thank RLGA Chairman Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki of Nevada and Vice-Chairman Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves of Mississippi along with their board for their commitment to serve,” Jankowski said. “Our 30 Republican lieutenant governors are strong partners who work with their governors and legislatures to balance budgets, increase job opportunities and support economic growth within their states.  We look forward to continuing to support the important work of Republican lieutenant governors in bringing the principles of smaller government, lower taxes and increased freedom to their states.”

The RLGA is the only national organization committed to raising money and assisting Republicans in their campaigns for lieutenant governor, an office that has served as a springboard to elected positions such as governor, U.S. senator, U.S. representative, or appointments to the president’s cabinet.
 The RLGA currently claims 30 of the 45 lieutenant governor offices nationwide, a record number for the organization. Republicans currently hold 15 of the 19 independently-elected positions and 15 of the 26 team-elected/appointed seats.
