The Arkansas News Bureau’s Rob Moritz reports that former state Sen. Doyle Webb of Saline County and businessman Joseph Wood of Fayetteville have both indicated they’re in the running to be the next Arkansas GOP chairman.
Webb is probably well-known to most Arkansas Project readers, due to his time in the state senate and service to the late Lt. Gov. Win Rockefeller as chief of staff.
Wood, the current party treasurer, may be a new face to many, but he’s been active in the Washington County GOP and was a McCain delegate to the Republican National Convention in September. He also keeps up an occasionally updated political blog here.
The Arkansas Project reported on Saturday that current GOP chair Dennis Milligan would step down, following a reasonably successful election season for Republicans in Arkansas.
But wait…There’s more….
It’s not mentioned in this story, but those who would know say that former GOP Rep. Jake Files of Fort Smith is seriously eyeing the post as well. There may be others. Party will choose the new boss at the December 13 meeting in Little Rock.
